Here is the play-by-play from Struve and Lavar Johnson:
Johnson comes out like a house on fire, landing an uppercut to the grill and right hook to the body. Johnson has him clinched against the fence, but Struve pulls guard because he had an overhook with his right arm. The “Skyscraper” locks in an armbar and Johnson immediately taps out.
