Another scramble and Gurgel passes into a side mount. North South control for Gurgel then back to side control. Not much happening other than jockeying for position. Robinson back to full guard. Nice hammer fists by Robinson, but Gurgel back to side control. Gurgel with full mount but he looses it right away and back to side control.

Gurgel wobbles to his corner after this fight and I think its obvious Robinson won that fight.
