Felipe Pena Submitted, Kaynan Duarte Crowned & More Kasai

Felipe Pena had a really bad weekend. The ADCC Absolute king got his knee injured during a particularly nasty heel hook by the hand of Tex Johnson of Unity.

The heel hook was slapped on tight and Pena had no choice but to tap. Sadly for Tex – he was outdone on points by Kaynan Duarte in the finals:
