Charity BJJ Superfight Between UFC Welterweights Anthony Pettis And Yoel Romero Ended Without Winner, Yoel Romero Forced His Rival To Tap Out! This Saturday (June 15, 2019), at the Pensacola Bay Center, Pensacola, Florida, Dean Toole Promotions took center stage. It was aired live on the RYouLive App. The main event of the evening brought an intriguing grappling bout between the former WEC and UFC Lightweight champion and BJJ black belt Anthony \u201cShowtime\u201d Pettis and UFC 170-pound No. 4-ranked contender Jorge \u201cGamebred\u201d Masvidal. Anthony Pettis\u00a0(22-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC) is set to meet Nate Diaz at UFC 241, while Jorge Masvidal (33-13 MMA, 10-6 UFC) fights Ben Askren at UFC 239. So this match was a great test! Pettis, the master of fighting from the bottom, intentionally pulled guard early on but Masvidal was unable to finish him. Anthony\u2019s full guard was simply a too difficult obstacle for the man who turned the lights out on Darren Till. Then Pettis grabbed rival\u2019s right leg, and he had the chance to stand up and go for the single-leg takedown. Yet, Pettis changed his mind and returned on his back. Jorge tried to grab his right leg, but Anthony Pettis rolled down the canvas and escaped, grabbing the opponent\u2019s right leg with both arms and pushing his chest forward. Jorge kneeled towards the opponent, passed to his left side, and continued moving until he reached north-south position. It was an excellent opportunity for D\u2019Arce or anaconda choke, but Pettis swiftly turtled and rolled on his back. https:\/\/twitter.com\/ryoulive\/status\/1138779248863432704 https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/BywVA1jo3It\/?igshid1obztbr06klrw Overall, the bout was entertaining, there was a lot of action. Anthony Pettis even attempted a flying guillotine and leg lock few times, and remained dynamic throughout the combat. \u201cGamebred\u201d kept himself safe in the first place, and attacked the opponent\u2019s neck and arms from time to time. He spent more time in the top position and on the foe's back, but Pettis\u2019 submission defense was just world-class. Check this video to enjoy Pettis Vs Masvidal BJJ match. There was no winner in the end, but the draw is not a surprise. After all, Anthony Pettis and Jorge Masvidal are both well-rounded in submission defense. In an interview with BJPenn, Jorge Masvidal opened up about the way the bout against \u201cShowtime\u201d came together for a good cause. (h\/t MMAMania.com) \u201dI\u2019ve been wanting to grapple for a while and I really haven\u2019t told too many people about it,\u201d Masvidal said. \u201cAnd my manager\u2019s trying to ding me and he\u2019s like, \u2018Hey, this charity reached out to me. They\u2019re putting together an event, you know\u2019. First he told me what it\u2019s going to support, and that\u2019s to get kids from troubled areas, not such great areas, that can\u2019t afford the gym, they put them in the gym, they buy the membership. They just give them something to do.\u201d \u201cMan, I was instantly sold, you know. I was like \u2018F**k yeah I got to be a part of that, bro.\u2019 If this is what\u2019s going on then count me in, you know.\u201d Also, UFC Middleweight competitor Yoel \u201cThe Soldier of God\u201d Romero (13-3 MMA), grappled Heavyweight fighter from Florida, Chris \u201cHuggy Bear\u201d Barnett, and earned a submission win, despite a huge weight and size difference. Moreover, Instagram person Supreme Patty lost the bout to Rudy Prieto via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, and 30-27). It was his debut. All the battles were clean, there was no chest shoves or other dirty moves. What are your thoughts on the event?
