    The Brazilian had his forearm on only one side of Pettis’s neck..

    That didn’t look like a choke to me..

    You must've never felt a legit neck crank from a strong guy. It feels like your head is going to pop off.

    I'm sure that a 3rd degree black belt at BJJ is capable of tapping anyone in the world with a neck crank.

    the way the choke / crank was actually applied with weight on the body but pulling head up has a similar effect as a twister, twister is not a choke but if you’ve ever felt any sort of crank or pressure on your neck it’s as much a fear tap as a pain tap as the heel hook you may not walk for a few months but the neck crank you think you may not walk again if your neck and vertebra actually break. I’m a pussy and tap to any neck cranks even can opener and my neck not near as jacked as some of these pros.

    Iv questioned Pettis heart in past but on this one I give benefit of the doubt
