    I kept waiting for him to go limp from that mounted guillotine. His head was purple. How the fuck he fought through that is beyond me.

    I was dumbfounded by the resolve and heart of Volk, man. I've never been more impressed by a champ facing adversity. He has my undying respect.
    He totally embodied "the heart of a champion" there. Fuckin' A!

    I thought he Chael Sonnen'd himself with the triangle. When he got out I screamed. I ain't even gonna lie

    I wasn't all that surprised at all. Those subs looked weak to me, and like Ortega said, Volk's neck is like a tree trunk. He is un-submittable. Ortega had good positioning on those subs per usual, but they weren't in that deep, and they didn't look very forceful.

    Thank God Rogan wasn’t there. He would have been unbearable in the 3rd.

    Considering his head was turning purple, he was gurgling, and was floundering around like a fish on dry land I’d say you’re really underselling it here.

    I mean, his blood was pumping & he was breathing hard as he was in the midst of an intense fight. I just didn't see those submissions sticking long-term, and I was right. Volk eventually chilled out, Ortega weakened, and Volk countered with extreme force both times.

    I get that they were dramatic sub attempts considering when & how they occurred, I just wasn't sold on either of them taking Volk out. He's too physically powerful

    He has championship level heart. Someone like Conrat wishes he could have.
