Yeah he's been fkn around in his previous fights but went straight for the kill tonight. If I didnt know better I'd say he held back a little putting it on.

He had zero MMA fights about a year ago. He wasn't fucking around. He was just trying to get some cage time

Thats my point. Trying to get some cage time = fkn around. He wasn't fkn around tonight.

Think he would fight FW in the UFC? He is only 5'8.

I can't imagine how awesome FW would be if all the UFC talent got to compete with Pitbull, McKee, Caldwell, Pico, Tonon, etc...

Talent getting spread out in UFC, Bellator, PFL, ONE, ACA and even Rizin (Horiguchi, Jiri) is the worst fucking thing about modern MMA.

Danaher posted the other day Tonon had been dealing with injuries. I don't know if he ment in general as all mma guys do or maybe something a little serious.

Compared to boxing it's still pretty good

Second degree black belt in judo doesn't mean much, to be honest. Also there are no leg locks in judo.

What you just said is the definition of fucking around.

I know but I'm old so I like to bitch about things, especially my favorite sport.

Tonon pulled ashi garami from the single leg. His opponent did exactly the wrong thing by trying to run away, and the heel hook was there for the taking.

Definitely shows Gary's killer instinct and ability to capitalize on mistakes on the ground. But pulling guard like that won't be an advisable strategy against the top-heavy wrestlers and more savvy grapplers in the UFC.

More impressive by your standard then is the rolling kneebar Kopylov pulled on Branco in 19 seconds.

Not really sure what a “good wrestler” or a “top heavy grappler” would have done there. He just pulled guard.  Garry is the most dangerous grappler in mma right now.

Watch it closely. Nakahara tried to get out of the ashi garami by leaping away. He even got on his hands and tried crawling away. It’s the exact wrong reaction.

The proper response to ashi is to stay heavy on top and drive into your opponent. Get heavy on your captured leg, don’t try to pull it out. Get an upper body control and work to clear or squash the reap.

The only way to develop these instincts is to train with leg lockers.

Yep. I really believe that this is what the future of MMA submission grappling is going to look like. Ryan Hall making BJ look foolish is another example. 

The MMA game is always evolving. Unorthodox strikers have had their moment, unorthodox submission guys are about to break out
