Late in the second round, Brooks maneuvered Sojo into a rear-naked chokehold. It seemed certain that Sojo’s night was over– but he held on long enough to make it to eke through to the end of the round.
With the first two rounds scored for Brooks, Sojo knew he’d have to take some dramatic risks to avoid a unanimous decision against him.
Unfortunately, his wild right hook missed Brooks and only helped to open Sojo up for an easy takedown. From the mat, Brooks executed a flawless rear-naked choke until Sojo submitted and the match was called.
Despite the decisive win at Titan FC 81, Brooks has since hinted at a possible retirement to the press.
If Titan FC 81 turns out to be Brooks’ final fight, it’s safe to say that he went out on top.
