On This Day in MMA History: Toby Imada Inverted Triangle Chokes His Way Into MMA’s Eternal Highlight Reel

Showcasing the semifinals of their very first lightweight tournament as well as the promotional debuts of future UFC fighters Joey Beltran, Waylon Lowe, Dave Herman, and inaugural Invicta FC flyweight champion Jessica Penne, Bellator’s fifth event was truly stacked for it’s time and featured just one decision on its 9-fight card. But none of the finishes held a candle to the moment when Toby Imada choked out Jorge Masvidal with an inverted triangle choke in the evening’s headlining fight on May 1st, 2009 — five years ago today.

A little background: After securing tournament quarterfinal victories over Alonzo Martinez and Nick Agallar, respectively, at Bellator 1, veteran journeyman Toby Imada was set to face off against rising up-and-comer Jorge Masvidal, who in addition to being a rather prolific street fighter had already scored stoppage victories over Joe Lauzon and Yves Edwards in his young MMA career. After two rounds of fighting, Masvidal looked every bit the dynamic striker (and gambling favorite) he had been billed as, having punished Imada with hard shots and vicious ground-n-pound for the majority of the contest.

UFC officials announced yesterday that Irish featherweight contender Conor McGregor will take on American 145′er Cole Miller in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46, July 19th at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland.

Miller has been angling for a fight against McGregor for months, trash-talking “McGruber” at almost every public opportunity and calling him a “show pony” who doesn’t deserve the hype. But of course, everybody wants it until they get it. McGregor responded to Miller’s criticism on yesterday’s installment of UFC Tonight:

[Miller] opened his mouth, he was under the influence of post-fight adrenaline. It has the same effect as alcohol. It makes you brave. He spoke with bravery, but guess what happened? It wore off. Now he’s faced with the reality that he’s going to face me July 19th. Me coming back from this injury is a man possessed. I’m going go in there and I’m going to break him in the very first exchange…
