After a bit of play back and forth, and Estima atempt at an arm drag to single leg which got Jacare on his back and from which he recovered back to his feet. Looked like Jacare was saving his energy for the long game while Braulio is keeping active. BE into the butterfly guard, with now Jacare trying to pass, Estima tries a footlack and Jacare escapes.
