Gordon Ryan taps Jacob Cocuh at Who’s Number One

BJJ’s finest Gordon Ryan returned to the mat after a one year break from the sport in a styl. The American defeated his fellow countryman Jacob Couch in the main event of Who’s Number One event that took place this past Friday, March 25, in Dallas, United States.

Ryan utilized a stifling top game and steady positional dominance to secure a submission win over Couch. Ryan survived an early leg entry from Couch, but otherwise applied constant, suffocating pressure to achieve mount over and over again on the smaller Couch.

After over 10 minutes of pressure passing, Ryan moved to a tight S-mount position, exposing Couch’s arm and getting the tap before Ryan even attacked the arm.

And in the co-main event, Mica Galvao earned a hard-fought decision over ADCC veteran Dante Leon. Galvao picked up one of the biggest wins of his career with a high-paced decision victory over Dante Leon.

Leon was able to press the action on the feet and secure several clean takedowns, but it was Galvao’s submission threats — including an armbar from guard that appeared to be fully locked in — that earned him the judges’ decision.
