Jon “Thor” Blank (-140) vs. Manuel Ribamar (+110)
8-minute N0-Gi match at 185lbs
In the main event Jon “Thor” Blank from 10th Planet takes on Manuel Ribamar from Unity Jiu-Jitsu. Both men are black belts and but only Ribamr competes both gi and no-gi. This is a no-gi match and Jon Blank is a NOGI and leg lock specialist. Under the F2W ruleset, Blank will have an advantage with a game that is more geared toward submissions. Ribamar will need to dominate position and avoid giving inside leg position to Blank who will constantly be looking to enter into leg locks. Blank also has a very good bottom armlock and arm-in guillotine attack,
Ribamar overall is a more experienced competitor but Blank may have more NOGI experience and is an ADCC veteran. Blank has more paths to victory as long and if he can stop Ribamar’s aggressive top passing game, he should get the victory. Ribamar, like many points-based competitors, will need to constantly avoid leg submissions.
