View the full main card results and video highlights from Grapplefest 15. Keith Krikorian and Luke Griffith won title matches.
On Saturday, April 1, Grapplefest 15 took place live from Liverpool, England.
Originally slated to feature a four-man 70kg tournament, injuries and withdrawals forced the bracket to be scrapped days before the event. Still, the card showcased a pair of title matches in addition to a number of elite-level match-ups.
Still very much in the early stages of his career as a professional grappler, Griffith already holds notable wins over the likes of Haisam Rida, Oliver Taza, and Owen Livesey, making him one of the sport’s most promising young stars.
And in the co-main event, 10th Planet black belt Keith Krikorian needed just over one minute to submit ADCC veteran Sam McNally. Krikorian showed off his top-end back-taking skills early to sink in a rear-naked choke and secure the 70kg Grapplefest title in the process.
Lower on the card, “Big” Dan Manasoiu submitted Mark MacQueen with a heel hook, Daisy Fresh’s Rosa Walsh secured an armbar finish against Hayley Carter, and perennial top competitor Ellis Younger earned a decision over perennial tough out Chris Wojcik.
