Lovato tried to create distance by using his legs and tried an inverted guard. Kayron side-mounted Rafael but Rafael pulled him down by strangling his legs. Kayron looked helpless. Rafael gained the top position and his body weight pressure did not let Kayron Gracie's inverted guard to work.
Rafael took the top position, turned Kayron into a turtle position, gained control of his back, and applied a triangle. And then this triangle changed into full guard. These all moves in a single minute were fascinating but Kayron’s way of surviving the technique was also a feast for the eyes.
