What a crazy fight this was. The fight started and Nikhil exploded with a single leg takedown. Tarun was under pressure from the get go with Nikhil maintaining the top positon with several unsuccessful attempts to mount. Tarun was extremely good at ensuring he kept Nikhil’s explosive style in check. There were several scrambles and one led to Tarun getting the top position however he was unable to keep top position. In another scramble when both fighters separated and stood back up, Tarun was distracted trying to fix his fight gear which gave Nikhil the opportunity to attack a standing Kimura, Tarun tried to roll out of it by hitting the ground however Nikhil was diligent and he didn’t stop until he got the tap.
