Sorry to see Professor Dance lose this weekend. Losing always sucks. Dance's opponent came out aggressive and talkative. Loved to know what that guy was saying. Scott handled the aggression just fine. Biggest surprise for me was how much of the fight was standing. I'd say basically all of it. at least 95% on the feet. Lots of wrist control combat. About 2 mins in Wolk threw a jumping scissor roll to try to grab a heel hook, but Scott rolled through it nicely and they were back on their feet in like 10 seconds. With 3 mins left, Wolk hits a very well timed trip that put Scott down, but again Scott got back to his feet in 10 seconds. Scott went for a trip with a minute left, it didn't work, but Wolk used it as an opportunity to grab a snag single and take Scott down, but they were back to the feet in seconds. I thought Scott fought really well. I'd love to see a rematch.
Scot wins with rear naked choke at about the 3 min mark. Scott was in control the whole time. Great fight.
FYI, FloGrappling has Scott starting at 8:27pm Eastern.
I'm at Copa Nova posted up on the bleachers near the checkin/weighin area. Fyi
Anyone planning to go to open mat tonight (Thursday Dec 27th) at 6pm?
