ALEXANDRE PANTOJA VS. HIROMASA OGIKUBO fight video
As this fight got underway, Ogikubo wasted no time to latch on to Pantoja with a body lock while wrestling him against the cage in the clinch. Ogikubo nearly took Pantoja's back, but instead applied pressure until he secured the takedown and put the Brazilian down on the ground. From there, Ogikubu remained in control, and although he didn't do a ton of damage, Pantoja just had no answer for his offense on the ground.
Cejudo commented that the game plan for Pantoja was to either force Ogikubo to defend submissions or eat a bunch of elbows if he took the fight to the ground, but neither of those things happened. Instead, Pantoja simply waited for the right opportunity to spring back to the feet, but it wasn't easy with Ogikubo in complete control on the mat.
