“Instead of using the position to sweep Schomberg and attack his leg from the ground, Dykeman leaves his left foot floating when he triangled his legs. This slight miscalculation allows Schomberg to scoop up Dykeman’s foot.”
Both athletes make their way to the center, slap hands and calmly circle while throwing out faints to see how the other reacts.
Schomberg engages first with brief collar ties before Dykeman returns with some of his own. Dykeman sees an opening and jumps to a scissor takedown, where he can attack the legs or sweep, but he lands more in a knee-shield position. Schomberg is just able to frame his right knee inside and pressure off Dykeman’s attacks.
Dykeman inverts and looks to attack with a triangle, but Schomberg avoids the attempt by pressure passing around Dykeman’s legs. During the transition, Dykeman finds Schomberg’s right leg and threatens from 50/50.
Schomberg knows his leg is in a bad spot, so he stands and reaches down in order to break Dykeman’s right-handed grip while getting his right foot planted to the mat to stop Dykeman’s attack.
With his foot planted, Schomberg starts to smash in Dykeman’s legs to smother his attack. Dykeman does not want to give up on attacking Schomberg’s leg, so he transitions to triangling his legs to stay locked onto Schomberg’s right leg.
Instead of using the position to sweep Schomberg and attack his leg from the ground, Dykeman leaves his left foot floating when he triangled his legs. This slight miscalculation allows Schomberg to scoop up Dykeman’s foot.
Like a dangling Gulp Worm floating in front of a large-mouth bass, Schomberg snatches up a straight ankle lock on Dykeman’s left ankle. Dykeman tries his best to find an angle to escape, but Schomberg drives in with his hips and taps Dykeman with 4:59 left in the round.
Roman Schomberg def. Dan Dykeman by standing straight ankle lock from 50/50 (4:59).
