Knee to the body for Solecki. Hubbard able to move away from the cage while still in the clinch, but Solecki just marches him over to the other side of the cage.

Now Solecki able to spin around to Hubbard’s back and climbs up on him. Hubbard leans him back into the age to take some of the weight off him. Solecki starts to land left hands while keeping the body triangle locked up.
