Fight to Win Pro 56 was a night of high-level submissions and exciting action as some of the most prominent names in the sport tore up the mat. Fight to Win Pro continues to put on some of the best events in competitive grappling and this night pushed that trend to higher expectations.

Eddie Cummings and Jacob Sandoval closed out the show as they battled in the black belt, no-gi 155-pound weight division. Sandoval took to the challenge of entering Cummings guard, who offered attack after attack from the position and butterfly guard. The end was near when Cummings hit a back transition and quickly secured a rear naked choke on Sandoval. Sandoval barely had the opportunity to fight the position as he was forced to tap out to the Danaher Death Squad standout.

In the co-main event, Talita Alencar added to her collection of Fight to Win Pro championship titles as she defeated Pati Fontes for the women’s no-gi flyweight title. This match featured two world champions and did not disappoint in any fashion. Alencar pulled out the victory via arm bar to claim the title.

Nicky Ryan also continued his growth as a young prodigy in the sport. He defeated 10th Planet competitor, Ricky Lule in the 140 pound, no-gi division. Lule landed a big slam, but Ryan recovered nicely, hitting a leg drag pass to back take which allowed him to win via rear naked choke.

According to event promoters, Fight to Win Pro featured a 71 percent finish rate, the highest of any event to date. Fighters were paid out a total of $24,583 in winning. The event will be available for replay via
