JT Torres celebrates his win over Benson Henderson

Fight to Win Pro 59 brought back former UFC champion and Bellator title challenger, Benson Henderson, to continue his campaign in the competitive grappling industry. Standing across from him was one of the best in the sport in ADCC and multiple-time champion, JT Torres. The two athletes fought for the gi welterweight title and it would be Torres adding another victory to his resume.

This was a match in which Torres showed why he is one of the most proficient competitive grapplers in the sport today. The Atos Academy standout put together an extremely successful 2017 campaign and continued that run with this clear victory over Henderson.

Henderson, who’s an experienced grappler in his own right, was competitive and aggressive in this match, but he didn’t have enough to threaten Torres in many positions. Torres would find his way to the mount early in the match and controlled the bout from that space. After securing the mount he would quickly move to the back, then transition to a variation of the bow and arrow choke to secure the submission with 4:16 remaining in the contest.

Another MMA veteran returned to Fight to Win Pro, as Jeff Curran competed in the co-main event against Gerson Atoigue. Atoigue is also a multiple-time veteran of Fight to Win Pro and used that experience to earn a decision victory over Curran in the 150 pounds, gi black belt division.

Brown belt Jake Watson proved why he is a name to watch in the competitive grappling world as he earned a big win over Hunter Colvin. Watson and Colvin would put on a great back and forth battle; so much so that they took home Fight of the Night honors. In the end, it would be Watson earning the victory via triangle to take home the middleweight no-gi title.

Tyson Antillon also took home a title when he defeated Jams Partridge via heel hook for the brown belt lightweight championship.
