    Desperation. He knew he was fucked the moment he felt Fedors strength.

    I knew exactly what he was going for but had no idea why he thought he had a chance of pulling that off on fedor lol

    Better than his spinning backfist attempt against Anderson.

    Impossible to do if you are concussed.

    Chael has delusions of grandeur. He also thought he could land a spinning back fist on Anderson Silva.

    It wasn't tight enough and I think he posted on his head instead of tucking his head for the roll.

    Edit: yeah, he drove his own spine into the canvas. His head was too far to the side, as well. It was out by Fedor's shoulder, but it should have been right beside Fedor's head so it could tuck into the space between his head and shoulder.

    The key is getting their forehead on the mat before beginning the roll, this gets their bodyweight forward and almost encourages them to start the roll themselves. If the head is up, like Fedor’s was, the weight transfers onto the forearms, which is a very strong and stable position and the roll is damn near impossible.

    I think his intentions were clear on what he was trying to do, the attempt wasn't even close and he had Fedor's back, why give up that position for such a ridiculous attempt?

    He attempted it when Fedor had the strongest possible leverage. Chael had no chance of succeeding that move in that specific moment.

    I think John told what he was trying to do when he tried it. Then Chael also said what was he trying.

    That's a name I haven't seen in awhile. I liked watching him fight.

    How much did Chael think Fedor weighed on fight night? Good job he didn't have a good grip on Fedor, he'd have done his back in.
    I think it was a panic YouTube move.

    Probably easier to do with a Gi maybe? I haven't practised it. Kind of stupid though when you already have the back.

    Also you have to pressure your opponents head down with your shoulder as you put your weight on him and your own forehead to the mat. Garry Tonon showed exactly what happens when you don’t as he showed a slight variation of this move. It looked just like Sonnen’s roll, haha.
