Nastula vs. Drago Wiki Update Wiki

The fight begins with both men circling.  Draggo throws a right that Nastula ducks under and initiates a clinch.  Draggo fights it off and just clips Nastula, who dives back in for a takedown and pulls guard, ending up in half guard.  Nastula nearly pulls off an armbar, but Draggo fights out and stands back up, inviting Nastula to follow.  Both throw wild shots that miss, followed by Nastula shooting for a single from way back and manages to pull Draggo into his half guard again.  Nastula manages to reverse position, ending up in mount.  Nastula throws some strikes, softening Draggo up.  Nastula's G'N'P opens a small cut on Draggo's forehead.  Stuck in the corner, the ref moves them back to the center of the ring wand the action resumes with Nastula still in the mount.  Draggo manages to sweep, putting Nastula on his back, but he gets sloppy with his G'N'P, allowing Nastula to grab an arm, throw his legs across Draggo's face and secure the armbar finish.
