On Friday, Who’s Number One (WNO) returned with an event headlined by Craig Jones and Luiz Panza. In the main event, Jones made lighting-quick work of Panza, immediately inverting to a leg entanglement and tight heel hook in under a minute. In the evening’s co-main event, four-time world champion Mikey Musumeci impressed with a heel hook victory over Lucas Pinheiro in what was just Musumeci’s second no-gi match in two years. Musumeci’s submission effectively erases any doubts of his ability to compete at the highest level of no-gi jiu-jitsu.
Lower on the card, Vagner Rocha and Josh Hinger engaged in a disappointing 15-minute clinch war, and teenage jiu-jitsu phenoms Micael Galvao and Cole Abate both impressed with dominant performances.
