Alot of fun and intersting things happened during UFC 116 in regards to the grappling world, thought it would be fun (if we can all GET ALONG!!!:icon_chee) to discuss them and hear peoples thougths. Here is what i will start with....... 1) Big shout out from Chris Leben to the Judo world, says he was tripped and tossed like he had never been before. Thought there was no way a Judo guy could toss him because he didn't have a Gi on and he would just punch them in the face. +1 Judo 2). Brock Lesner talks about training the Head and Arm and says it is tailored for him as a wrestler because its basically a head lock But then goes on to credit his BJJ coach for showing and training him in that sub. Is this sub win for Brock a feather in the hate of BJJ or just a big strong guy cranking away? he also gives a shout out to Eric Paulson in regards to his ground game. +1 for BJJ imo Eddie Bravo getting alot of camera time as he corners the victorious Sotiropoulos in his fight. Sotiropoulos really stymies a solid BJJ BB and wrestler on the ground and does so using some of Eddie's moves (which of course are the Machida's moves). Also shows that Sotiropoulos isn't just a casual player in the 10th planet system imo. +1 for 10th planet Were there really two "straight arm" submission victories at UFC 116? Isn't the straight arm just something you threaten with as you transition back and forth between Kimura and Key lock?:redface: Pretty badass!!!! +1 for Armlocks being legit Positioning from side control seems to be advancing imo. People using the crucifix and inverted triangle to control there opponents in side control. +1 for wrestling and BJJ Chris Lytle's sub defense to the DarceChoke and the fact that he seems to have let Brown into that move to set up an arm bar counter when Brown tired out. Hot Damn that's gutsy!!!!!!! Brown didn't seem to have the technical amplitude to finish the move and Lytle had unreal sub defense there. +1 for Harris gives us another example of what jumping to standing guard and "hanging" subs can get you............KTFO!!!!!! Dang that was a serious slam and him going to cross face before he did it was wicked!! +1 for slams How about Chris Leben showing again how to win a round using a very offensive guard with strikes and elbows to win the round from the bottom. +1 for attacking guards And finally, who really deserved SUB OF THE NIGHT in your opinion? Leben for slapping on that late round fight saving triangle Chris Lytle for the 3 in 1 sub (reverse triangle, neck crank, straight arm) Brock Lesnar for a suprise and pretty technical head lock (arm triangle:icon_chee) Feel free to comment on one or more of the above or add in some of your own!
