However, turning in another wrestling-heavy approach in the second round, Nickal took Brundage down once more at the fence, and after failing in an attempt to set up an arm-triangle submission attempt, the former eventually locked up a rear-naked choke win — scoring his third consecutive Octagon win to boot.
