Yuki Motoya taps Justin Scoggins with teepee choke at Rizin 14

Justin Scoggins was not successful in his first bout outside the UFC.

Making his debut inside the Rizin Fighting Federation ring in Saitama, Japan, on Monday, after a nine-fight run in the Octagon, Scoggins lost via first-round teepee choke submission to DEEP bantamweight champion Yuki Motoya.

Motoya clipped Scoggins with a heavy hand early on the feet, and quickly locked a triangle choke as soon as the fight went to the ground. Scoggins was trying to survive for a minute, but Motoya transitioned to a teepee choke to force the American to tap.

Scoggins is now on a four-fight losing skid, while Motoya rides a five-fight winning streak with four stoppages.
