    What the heck kinda choke was that? Looked like he started to like up a gator and then shoved his head in Almedia's shoulder... Kung Fu grip.

    did he actually triangle his arms though? Just look like he kept a tight gable grip and buried his head.

    its a very common move in bjj.

    MOre often than not you can't triangle your arms.

    That move is called kata gatame

    its just a side choke.

    That move doesn't take strength, just body mechanics and positioning

    Yeah I guess that was the squeeze, inverted though hmm. Never seen it or tried it from that angle. Guess what I'm trying out in practice tomorrow.

    I liked both ricardo and Hughes but I was glad to see Matt get the win.

    I thought it was an anaconda done with a gable grip instead of a triangle grip. That's how I always finish arm triangles but I didn't know it was possible for other chokes too.

    BJJ:icon_neut?

    Ive seen this kind of hold applied to control a front head and arm or to tire an opponent countless times in wrestling. Not EVERY submission has its orgins in BJJ.

    yep, arm-in front headlock, gable grip anaconda, whatever you want to call it. like rogan was saying, you probably have to be freakishly strong to put someone to sleep with it. matt hughes has "retard strength" though

    “It’s an old wrestling move,” said Hughes, who posted his record 17th win inside the Octagon. “I’ve been good at it. I’m happy to beat a good Brazilian with a wrestling move.”

    I actually thought Hughes would win and a friend of mine said it was pretty stupid. I plan to force feed him his own words on Monday, but in reality he will probably take my back and torture me

    Me neither. This dude is fucking impressive and always good for a big surprise.

    But I did not expect Almeida's standup to be that weak...
