Justin Rader Defeats Denny Prokopos in Super Fight!
Rafael Lovato Jr.‘s first black belt, Justin Rader, submitted Denny Prokopos, Eddie Bravo’s first black belt, in a 20 minute submission only match in O’Fallon, IL last Saturday, June 15th.
The people at Midwest Submission Challenge put on the match which went beyond expectations. Rader submitted Denny in 11 minutes and 6 seconds with a Darce choke. The match began with both competitors feeling out one another since they’ve never fought before. Denny was aggressive in the beginning but eventually fell prey to Rader‘s constant pressure. Justin Rader wasn’t our only representative, however. Brandon Cox won his gi division with a triangle in the finals and placed second in his no-gi division. Jared Dopp decided to jump in and won the brown belt gi division (subbing both opponents) because there was no one in his division. A huge congratulations to everyone who competed, especially Justin Rader!
