Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Technical Submission Video of the Day: Kimura’s a Bitch

VidProps: dwn4lf/YouTube
Member of the Potato Nation Bryce M. sent us this video of competition at BreakThroughMMA down in Daytona Beach, Florida, where two guys with long, slim builds fight over ownership of an arm.  The guy in the black vale tudo shorts is Aaron “Avatar” Strawmier, who wishes to claim the arm from his opponent, Jonathan Riffle.  Riffle hopes to maintain custodial custody of the arm in question.

If you interested in the whole fight (featuring commentary by Seth Petruzelli), you can watch it here, but this is the boiled-down essence of the fight.  Strawmier wants Riffle to tap, Riffle does not want to tap.  Strawmier encourages him strongly to tap, but Riffle does not.  Strawmier increases the torque on Riffle’s arm, and Bob’s your uncle:  Strawmier claims victory and ownership of Riffle’s appendage at the same time with a simple snap.

Actually, not so simple snap:  Bryce reports that Riffle suffered a spiral fracture, which is never fun.  Props to both guys for playing it cool after the injury.  Hey Strawmier, have you sent your info in yet for the Proving Ground?  There’s nothing like a Shinya Aoki-style highlight to put fear in your future opponents…

Either the guy getting his arm ripped off has had it happen before...or is just a manly man. After breaking my arm the 4th time, and having both bones come out of the skin, only thing I could think of was how PISSED I was that I was going to have to wear a cast again and I couldn't ride my bike anymore.
*shivers* Still sucked to watch that!

terrible job by the referee, he never actually bothered to stop the fight.

Agreed Stak. This guy just seems a bit dissapointed that he's lost. Personally,I'd be freaking the fuck out. I once broke someone else's arm in training and freaked out more than that Riffle did.

Man every time I see someone take getting a limb snapped like that and they don't instantly shit on themselves and get up screaming, crying and run out the cage, I question my own toughness. Because that's exactly what I would do.

Then comes the "Oh shit, maybe I should've tapped" moment.
