Here’s the play-by-play for Trigg vs. Takimoto:

Round 1. Trigg comes out with a leg-kick. Takimoto gets the takedown. Takimoto in Trigg’s guard. Trigg gets up and looks like he is much better while standing (as expected). Takimoto pulls Trigg down and Trigg is in Takimoto’s guard. Sidecontrol for Trigg. He tries to mount but Takimoto turns and almost falls out of the ring. The ref stands them up, and Takimoto comes out swining. Nothing seems to hit Trigg who takes him down. Takimoto is able to get half guard. Round is finished, clearly in favor of Trigg.
