    First off, don’t punch me in the uterus for not having a gif.

    Secondly, do any of my fellow Sherdoggers remember another fighter closing out an arm triangle from mount? I know Struve is seven feet tall, but I was still very impressed.

    Impressive considering how poorly it was executed

    I'm sure Rick story and Gregory Gillespie have also finished an arm triangle from mount

    This.

    It's not that hard to finish an arm-triangle from mount, but proper execution is definitely required.

    Sterling had a beautiful one from the guard, but Sage tapped from bottom half-guard. That was pretty embarrassing.

    Good for Struve, but all I can focus on is his skin. He looked to be turning that same shade of deathly purple-red as Pudzianowski.

    That's just Struve unlocking his Hulk powers. We may very well see him commit the first murder in the Octagon.

    Haha, mate. I didn't even notice your avatar and quote. Great minds think alike.
