Any suggestions on fighters using deep half in mma? I know Big Nog was able to apply it well, but looking for some other examples. Thanks

Wilson in his Bellator days put on some epic deep half displays.  I've seen Evan Dunham hit a few nice sweeps too

Its hard to see it used in mma because you have to be really good at it to use it both in jiu jitsu and mma. Those that are really good at it tend to stick to bjj competitions. That being said there are some great gifs out there of lil nog and shogun. shogun in particular hits some nice deep half to heel hooks

Yeah thats what happened this past weekend. My team mate and I sparred at a very reputable MMA gym and my buddy got caught in deep half and hammer fisted like crazy. Had there been elbows in sparring it'd have been really bad. Thanks for all the input guys. Appreciate it. Wilson Reis never occurred to me but definitely worth the time to watch. Thanks again!

I don't think you can "play" deep half in MMA, meaning you can't just hang out there holding the position. It has to be a transitional position used to sweep or off balance. If the sweep fails you should probably bail until you can attempt it again.
