The Fight To Win 2018 season kicked off in Sacramento, CA, with Vagner Rocha beating Dustin Akbari by ref’s decision in the main event of the evening.
Rocha and Akbari were determined to wrestle for top position and exchanged a series of collar ties and feints for the first half of the 10-minute bout. In fact, the action only went to the mat for a short time as Rocha pulled guard, then thwarted off an encroaching Akbari for a few moments before returning the feet.
In the end, Rocha’s aggressive movement and near takedown attempts earned him the split decision over the very tough Northern California local, Akbari.
