Nicky Ryan Gets Judges Decision Over Geo Martinez, More Results



The match that almost wasn’t went down last night. You might remember Geo Martinez initially said this was a match up he had nothing to gain for. And he certainly nailed that right. The 10th planet ace ended the match with Nicky Ryan holding on to a kimura and controlling Geo with a body triangle.


Here’s what Geo said post fight:

His brother added:

Gordon Ryan captioned the event as:

Nickys goes out and wins a 15 minute match against a world class @freakahzoidtfs. He ended with a fully locked kimura and reverse triangle but time ran out. Much respect to geo and the 10p team for an amazing performance and very even match most of the way through.. Kasai ran a great event once again with top level guys. Can’t wait for the next one. @musclepharm

Danaher commented:

Victory in NYC! Nicky Ryan won his grappling superfight versus the very tough and distinguished Geo Martinez tonight in NYC. He won a unanimous decision and in the final seconds had a fully locked triangle from the back (an advanced element of the back attack system) and appeared moments from a decisive submission victory. In addition he appeared to have the stronger submission attempts throughout the match, along with more positional reversals. It was a truly remarkable performance from this young man. He went through a tough training camp and tonight on the big stage he did everything he trained for perfectly. He has a maturity and elan that is truly remarkable for a man his age. Eddie Cummings won a hard fought decision over the very talented Renato Canuto as he had the better submission attempts and overall aggression. Frank Rosenthal has his best performance ever with a beautiful heel hook victory over 10th Planet stand out Zach Malany in one of the nights highlight moments. I am so proud of these remarkable athletes here in front of their home crowd. Bless you all from NYC! Hope you all enjoyed the show!
