Lovato Jr Triumphant at Fight To Win Pro 11 Co-Main Event

An incredible weekend took place as Fight To Win Promotion events made their next stop in Oklahoma City, OK where Lovato Jiu Jitsu Association Head Instructor, Rafael Lovato Jr looked to defend his Light Heavy weight Gi Title in the Co Main Event against the young up & coming American jiu jitsu black belt, Tanner Rice. There were fireworks from the moment these two high level competitors got grips with Lovato Jr bringing his signature constant pressure passing against Tanner's very crafty guard retention. Roughly six minutes into the ten minute super fight match up, Lovato Jr was able to get past Tanner's guard to where he ultimately became victorious with a textbook Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu cross choke from the mount position. Huge congratulations to Rafael Lovato Jr on his success at Fight To Win Pro 11! But the good news doesn't stop there as he was also able to win alongside six of his Lovato Jiu Jitsu warriors.
