Jax used her superior strength to get an advantage early on, but Asuka’s craftiness almost ended the bout within a minute as she locked on a flying armbar. Jax was able to break free and began to gain an edge again. This scenario, with Asuka locking up submissions that Jax would power out of, occurred several times.
