Magnus Cedenblad knew there was just seconds left in the second round of his fight vs. Krzysztof Jotko Saturday at UFC Fight Night 41, so he clinched on a guillotine choke and didn’t let go.
With a second remaining in the round, Jotko tapped, giving Cedenblad (11-4) his second submission win inside the Octagon.
The plan for Cedenblad, a training partner of Alexander Gustafsson, was to stand and finish Jotko on his feet. When that didn’t happen, he resorted to Plan B.
“My stand-up didn’t work, so I had to use my wrestling,” he said. “The plan was to knock him out. It wasn’t my best performance, but I won.”
Cedenblad reassured his fans that his “striking is good, it just didn’t work out (Saturday).”
Last August, Cedenblad latched in a guillotine choke against Jared Hamman and got the first round finish in under a minute. All total, he’s earned six submission wins.
The loss was the first of Jotko’s career, dropping him to 14-1 overall.
