Congratulations to Jefferson whose training and dedication paid of last weekend as he dominated his opponent in all areas with a skillful display of the well rounded MMA game that he has been crafting over the past few months.
The fight began with an immediate clash of striking where Jeff gained the upperhand which culminated in a flurry of strikes that sent the opponent reeling and badly rocked from a well timed uppercut. As the opponent seeked to clinch to avoid more punishment he was driven against the cage where a tussle for dominance was played out with fighters switching position a couple of times. Finally Jeff accomplished a stronger clinch and switched to a single leg takedown then back to a deep high crotch where he lifted the man high for a big slam! Having secured an impressive takedown he easily controlled with his Jiu-Jitsu and took mount position where he looked to finish although with a last ditch attempt the opponent managed to reverse the position putting jefferson on his back. Unlucky for him the situation got worse though as Jefferson took the initiative to attack a lightning quick triangle choke which combined with a kimura armlock forced a sweep back to mount and the opponent was forced to submit to the choke.
Submission victory at 4 minutes of round 1.
