It's amazing how TUF and TV editing made him out to be a complete a@s when he seems like a very humble and respectful guy.

lol Hughes can win by arm bar and he will still call it a wrestling move.

I'm confused about something... he calls it an "old wrestling move" and says he used it in his wrestling matches all the time. "It's a choke. A blood choke."

Am I missing something...?

It's not that almeida has never seen a arm/head triangle but it's just that hughes clipped him, dissoriented and dazed him before the submsission.

When Hughes beat GSP with an arm bar counter to a kimura, he called it "BJJ 101," so you can take him at his word that this wasn't BJJ.

Dave and Mark Schultz used that front headlock/choke all the time to choke guys out or almost out. It was banned in international wrestling competition in 1984, I think. Mark Schultz put out an instructional video on it a few years back.
It's a wrestling move. Youtube Dave or Mark Schultz, watch them wrestle and you'll see it a good bit, they were doing it in the 80's before BJJ even hit in America.

Hughes seems human in that interview. It almost makes me forget about the pig torturing/testicle throwing/dad assaulting/bar pissing/pedo sexing crap he talks about in his book.

Without the arm. Obviously Hughes learned his choke from Judo.

Just to clarify for everyone, that was called the "cornfed choke".

 its not a judo choke or a modified version of a judo choke. its the same headlock that the schultz brothers made famous by putting their opponents to sleep. it was later banned from competition for that very reason.
