That was some amazing calm to keep fighting that choke.

As funny/insulting as it feels to say, Lentz actually looking very solid in the grappling department so far. Good exchanges from both.

Lentz 10-9
Mosvar was beating him up at the end though, very impressive to escape both chokes.

I got Lentz up two rounds with these guillotines. I'm probably wrong though

The face of Lentz doesn't ware any damage well. Seems like a couple good connections and he's bleeding or swelling.

Soo if Lentz already had the most guillotine attempts in UFC history, how big is the gap now? 🤔

Evloev had a rough start but he really put it together in the 3rd. Solid fight. 29-28
