David starts focusing on the shoulder of Rocky, keeping him grounded with a headlock and a nerve hold. David goes back to Rocky’s shoulder when switching back and forth between holds before Rocky gets to his feet. Rocky comes back with strikes before hitting a diving stomp for two before David locks in a Trailer Hitch.
