    I can't find a gif....but if you ever see them shadow boxing or their training videos... they do it.

    Crazy that Yair landed it in a fight.

    Edit- it's not from that exact same position Yair was in...but still a suprise elbow coming upwards.

    Edit- found it from a old post.

    Maybe a signed treaty like using a cloaking device in Star Trek.

    Yes. 100%

    Yair basically threw an upwards elbow while leaning forward. He didn't even rotate at all. I've never seen that before in a fight.

    We need a GIF of it

    Oh yeah I totally agree... just felt the it's a similar approach to suprise someone with a elbow they wouldn't expect coming.

    Is OP saying that, or is he rather suggesting that their possibly shared camp and fighting style might incorporate it.

    Choose wisely.
