Fight 2 Win 136: Kaynan Duarte v Vinicius “Trator” Ferreira Preview

Fight 2 Win 136 comes to San Diego on 15th February and brings a stacked card, toppe by Kaynan Duarte v Vinicius “Trator” Ferreira. While Duarte has been in the news recently for failing a post-tournament drugs test and being banned from IBJJF events, he is still eligible to compete under any other promotion, including Fight 2 Win.

Kaynan has built up a lot of steam over the last year or two, he won gold at ADCC 2019 in a solid performance and wrapped up the end of 2019 by putting a Gi back on and winning the Spyder Invitational and $100,000. His opponent, while only recently being awarded his black belt has already made waves on the professional grappling circuit. Vinicius “Trator” Ferreira started out by beating Keenan Cornelius to take gold at the No-Gi Pan-Ams last year and then finished 2019 on a high note by taking gold at The No-Gi World Championships.

This will be a difficult matchup for both men but Duarte has looked absolutely unstoppable over the last year or so and should have a slight weight advantage over Trator as well. This could be what edges the fight in Duarte’s favor. Before the main event, some world-class grapplers are competing like the legendary Baret Yoshida, Edwin Najmi, Johnny Tama, Miha Perhavec and Jesse Taylor.
