An uppercut by Texeira drops Kingsbury, and Texeira takes his back after some punches from the side. Kingsbury rolls and Texeira pounds on him some from the top. Kingsbury gets sloppy while looking for an escape and Texeira locks up the arm triangle choke. He slides off to the side and tightens it up. Kingsbury has no escape, and he has to tap.

Just the same, Volkmann gets him on his back about 30 seconds into the fight. So much for that approach. Sass looks like heís thinking triangle choke, as he often is, but switches to on oma plata. Volkmann is out easily and back on top in Sassís guard. Sass slaps on a triangle -- his bread and butter -- and Volkmann is stuck. Sass attacks the arm as well, and thatís all for Volkmann. Seems like he might have injured his arm in the process.

Wow! Nice submission, that was a good win for him. I'm not familiar with Paul Sass but Volkmann was a very tough opponent; I was really impressed with Paul's self-deprecating modesty during the post-fight interview with Joe.
These last two fights were fast. 1:53 and 1:54 and done! Impressive, both of them.
