Professor X survives insane armbar to win

source: middleeasy

Frenchman Xavier Foupa-Pokam has struggled lately, winning just two fights of the last 11. Last weekend at BAMMA 11 in Birmingham, England, he faced 11-2 Welshman Jack Marshman. Although it was a mighty struggle, in the end Xavier took a split decision, and fight of the night honors.

Marshman got the takedown early, and sunk an armbar, which Professor X somehow escaped. Then Marshman took him down, and sunk an armbar even deeper, which Professor X somehow escaped, but not before Marshman appeared to attempt to break the joint with hammerfists.

Was it him or Al Hassan that had their arm snapped when they were in the UFC?
