Jorgensen’s corner telling him to work the body, as he does. Albert, however, sweeps and takes the back of Jorgensen. Both hooks are in for Albert, but Jorgensen gets up and slams Albert down, landing inside a possible triangle. Jorgensen back on top and lands a nice elbow. Stiff elbow directly to the face by Jorgensen. And another elbow by Jorgensen. Albert gets his legs around Jorgensen’s head in a triangle, as Albert pulls down, squeezing hard. Jorgensen trying to fight out of it as we go under two minutes. Jorgensen gets out, going right into side control. What an incredible attempted submission by Albert, and an even better job by Jorgensen to fight out of it. Body shots by Jorgensen, who grabs and pushes Albert back to the mat. Jorgensen to the back as we go under 10 seconds in an action-packed round and Jorgensen gets the tap as the buzzer sounds.
