He finally got it in place, was in side mount but couldn't execute it, at which point Gegard freed himself and Kang stood up.
From there he tried to jump in with some shots while manuvering Gegards legs, but he made a rookie mistake and left his arm there. It took Gegard about 5-10 seconds to fully sink that triangle in, which Kang could have easily pulled out of because it wasn't tight at first. Then, we all know what happened there.
I'll rewatch the fight, I may have had my Canadian nut-hugging glasses on during it. Either way though, I don't like how Damone's downplaying Mousasi's improvements as a fighter, he just submitted a legit top 10 opponent.
