Last night’s Studio 540 Challenge provided quite a bit of excitement!
The event of the night saw Gordon Ryan doing his best to achieve leg entanglements on Felipe Pena. Pena was more concerned with passing which he practiced plenty. He tried passing on both sides and with plenty of skill to boot. However there was no dice and the two were duking it out with plenty of back and forts for the duration of first 30 minutes.
However around minute 40 Felipe Pena managed to secure the back of Ryan and sink in an RNC!
Pena went on to challenge Ryan to a gi fight! It will be quite interesting to see if Ryan accepts.
Felipe Pena’s coach, multiple-time World Champion Romulo Barral told Flograppling:
“We [Gracie Barra Northridge] would like to make the same challenge. We’d like to put $20,000 and make the fight with the gi [and] submission-only. On our rules. So, I hope Gordon can accept.”
“I am down. I accepted his challenge, so I will be happy too if he accept the challenge with the gi, submission only as well.”
It’s hard to see Ryan accepting. His last Gi match was at purple belt and a submission loss to Norway’s Tommy Langaker which was made into a meme:
There you have it folks! What did you think of these fights? Which one is your favorite?
