Waldburger doesn’t suffer much though, getting to his feet quickly, avoiding a takedown and completing one of his own. He passes to side control, but Stumpf gets to his feet. A wild scramble ensues with Stumpf dropping for the guillotine. Waldburger defends easily and takes side control. He rolls for an armbar, then a triangle, which he completes. Stumpf taps.
