58. The Personal Beef Between Gordon & Felipe

The Personal Beef Between Gordon Ryan & Felipe Pena | Grappling Bulletin (Ep. 58)

May 23, 2022

There's never a dull moment in the jiu-jitsu world, especially when Gordon Ryan is involved. Last week we dropped the bombshell news that Gordon would return for not one, but TWO big matches prior to ADCC. 

First, WNO light heavyweight champion Pedro Marinho will take on Gordon Ryan on the WNO: Who's Next Finale on July 14. Then, just 24 days later, Gordon will face off with his old foe Felipe Pena in a special no-time limit, submission-only rules match. 

We had lots to discuss in today's show, including the upcoming IBJJF Worlds (just over a week away!), the many great superfights we can look forward to over the summer, and more.
