TUF 17 Finale: Justin Lawrence Vs. Daniel Pineda

Justin Lawrence vs. Daniel Pineda

We begin action with the first of three featherweight bouts on Facebook, as Justin Lawrence (4-1) seeks to rebound from his first career loss against Daniel Pineda (17-9), who is on a two-fight losing skid. The referee in charge will be Chris Tognoni.

Round 1: Pineda with a big takedown off a power-shot, working quickly to pass. Lawrence, using the cage, is able to get up. Trip gets Lawrence back to the canvas, with Pineda in half-guard. Pineda locking in a kimura and this one is over, as it was locked in a little longer than needed but the ref couldn’t see the tap from the other side. Perfect kimura, as he had Lawrence stuck.

Daniel Pineda def. Justin Lawrence via submission (kimura) at 1:35 of Round 1
