Both men upon up the bout with their kicks, Stephens drilling his into the leg of Schulte, up until Schulte takes him down about one minute into the first round. The round is spent with Schulte attempting an arm-triangle choke that appeared incredibly close to being finished, before taking the back and transitioning to the rear naked choke.

Again, we all thought the fight was over there and then, but Stephens survives and works his way back up, throwing heavy bombs until the end of the round.

Schulte secures another beautiful takedown to start the second and sinks in the arm-triangle choke once again. This time, Stephens didn’t offer up much resistance and was forced to tap.

Natan Schulte is now 23-5-1 as a professional, as he secures the tenth submission victory of his career tonight at PFL 10. This win improved him to 2-1 in PFL’s 2022 season, only losing a split decision to UFC veteran Olivier Aubin-Mercier, who fights for the PFL lightweight championship opposing Stevie Ray later tonight.
