Royval then briefly attacked with an omoplata before taking top control. The fight returned to the feet where a lot of strikes were being launched on both sides. Royval clipped his foe with a knee that hurt Kara-France agains, and then dove on another submission attempt. On the feet, Royval pressed forward behind his volume, and Kara-France tried his best to keep up. The second round saw Kara-France shoot in for a takedown, but Royval answered by jumping a guillotine. The submission hold was tight, and after a couple of adjustments, Royval got himself the tap.
