Almeida still in top-half and abandons the advance moves to instead chip shots in. Almeida regrips the head and Rozenstruik has slowly inched himself near the fence. He’s digging and underhook and trying to get to stand up. Almeida chipping shots in here and now gets his body high to land with more power.
Rozenstruik showing very good defense thus far and Almeida clears both legs to move to side control on the fence side. Rozenstruik now turns his back to stand but Rozenstruik sticks with him and moves to mount!
