“But McLain takes notice to Story’s arm placement and uses the anchor on Story’s left arm and collar to launch his hips high. The triangle is sunk in deeper now.” 

Both athletes slap hands, drop down to low wrestling stances and circle the mat for openings.

     McLain sees his, finds a grip and jumps guard, pulling Story into his web.

     Story focuses on controlling McLain’s hips but leaves his right elbow floating away from his body. McLain notices and slaps on a lightning-fast triangle.

     Story knows he’s in trouble, certainly doesn’t want this story to end in the first chapter. He squats down, backs out and frees his head, briefly finding some light. But McLain does a good job at keeping his hips from dropping too far down to the mat. There, Story might be able to control the hips and escape completely.

     McLain anchors to Story’s left arm with his left hand while controlling his left collar with his right hand. Very nice technical grip control exhibited there.

     Story remains in a low base-squat, keeping an underhook on McLain’s left leg. He could circle his right arm free and look to pin McLain’s left leg, which would free him from McLain’s triangle attack.

     But McLain takes notice to Story’s arm placement and uses the anchor on Story’s left arm and collar to launch his hips high. The triangle is sunk in deeper now.

     Story tries his best to roll out but McLain’s legs are wrapped too tight. McLain submits Story at 5:37 left in the match.

     Dave McLain def. Tylor Story via triangle choke.
