Unbelievable! This is perhaps the first time in MMA history the Boston Crab or Walls of Jericho submission has been used to finish a fight!!!
Mixed martial arts shares an interesting border with many sports. By nature, MMA is a blend of all styles, each fighter with a different take on their overall mix. Some fighters prefer to strike, others to wrestle or use Brazilin Jiu Jitsu.
One particular brand of sports entertainment that rarely gets dipped into is pro wrestling. Mainly, that’s because most ‘moves’ used in pro wrestling are ineffective in real life combat situations. That said, on occasion, we do see it.
Wild MMA fighter Jonathan Ivey is infamous for using WWE techniques. Once he used the people’s elbow in live combat. We’ve also seen a drop kick used effectively under the Revolution Fight Series banner.
Understandably, these moves rarely lead to an actual submission or knockout finish…until now.
