Big kick to the body from Duffy. Jorge presses forward and gets into the clinch again. He wants this fight on the mat if at all possible, but Duffy is denying his attempts to do so thus far.
Duffy able to move out and away from the clinch, though he takes a knee in the process.
Solid combination from Jorge. Duffy lets his hands go, but Jorge ducks under, clinches and then looks for the throw. However, it’s a botched attempt and Duffy lands partially on top and in a good position, almost immediately locking in a triangle choke attempt. He uses Jorge’s leg to get extra leverage, and that’s it, Jorge taps and Duffy has himself a first round submission victory with just 3.05mins on the clock!
