The UFC has signed its second Chinese fighter "The Wild Wolf" Jumabieke Tuerxun:
From: Xinjiang Province
Age: 26
Height: 5'8"
Weight: Bantamweight (135 lbs)
Style: Sanda, Wrestling
Fighting out of: Xi'an
MMA Record: 27-0

Tuerxun is a former Legends FC champion, and fought most recently for RUFF. He did vie for the RUFF title with its $150,000 payday, as he did not want to sign a long-term contract. If he does well in the UFC, the decision will prove to have been a wise one.

Bieke combines pinpoint Sanda striking with powerful freestyle Wrestling. Ethnically a Kazakh, Tuerxun trains out of China’s elite Xian Physical Education University, under Zhao Xuejun, the Godfather of Chinese MMA.

He states his goal is "to one day have the whole world know my name – for China, for my homeland, and for my team and university.”

The UFC's first Chinese fighter, Tiequan "The Wolf" Zhang, joined the organization when the WEC was folded into the UFC.

Having the first two Chinese fighters both nicknamed "Wolf" neatly parallels the tradition in the west of having a lot of fighters nicknamed Pitbull :-)

Figured this was coming after he pulled out of his last RUFF fight. Good signing. Lets see how he does against a big step up in competition.

Somewhere, Bruce Buffer read this news and threw something across the room when he realized he was going to butcher the fighter's name at the intro's.

Tuerxun is a freaking animal. We've covered his fights in RUFF. I think that it's great, and it'll be big for UFC. If he can beast the competition, it'll be the Yao Ming effect. RUFF is taking the country by storm, and this will help. Phone Post 3.0

Pretty sweet choke from side control. If someone could give a break down on it that would be cool.

Agent_Doakes_Aint_no_Jokes - LOL @ his failed back flip. He must suck, all Chinese people are awesome gymnasts.
This is true. Just take a walk through your accounting department. The backflips are insane! Phone Post 3.0

goocher - Pretty sweet choke from side control. If someone could give a break down on it that would be cool.

It really wasn't anything too crazy.  I'm a white belt and I had a purple belt teach it to me a couple months ago.  It's more for positional control but you can go out from it if you don't know how to adjust.  The guy who taught it to me basically said you are trying to get your opponent to "not fucking look at you" lol.  So you are driving their face away and applying a ton of pressure to their neck with your bicep by reaching under their neck to the opponent's opposite shoulder.  It is fucking horrible when applied by a guy who has a wrestling background.  I have no idea why the guy from the bottom was so insistent on maintaining the headlock versus defending side mount attacks.  He looked to be pretty new on the ground. 

That said....when I was taught this control position I was taught to walk your feet from side control towards your opponent's head while dropping your hip closest to the opponent to apply even more pressure.  Tuerxun was blocked by the cage but it looked as if he was using the cage to apply more pressure. 

If you have never experienced this sort of control/choke/pressure it is something you will NEVER forget.  Fuck it was just horrible.  Wrestlers are just amazing with how much they can absolutely punish you with pressure and terrible terrible positions if you are on bottom.
