The champion lands another left and the challenger hasn’t landed much so far. Left hand followed by a right for the champion which rocks Jacobsen. A trip from Fishgold leads to Jacobsen being on top but it soon goes back to the feet and Fishgold has the clinch against the cage. Jacobsen has a huge cut under his left eye. Fishgold targets it with the right hand and the Norwegian can’t find his timing. The champion continues to look comfortable in the clinch and works his way to the mat in side control, and comfortable into full mount. He sinks in the rear-naked choke and it’s done for Alexander Jacobsen. Fishgold wins by first round submission.
