Technique Video of the Day: Gracie Breakdown – TUF 14 Finale and UFC 140

What a couple of weeks it has been for the avid Jiu Jitsu fanatic. Diego Brandao scored a brilliant last second submission over Dennis Bermudez to walk away with a UFC contract and a down payment on his momma’s new house, Frank Mir added the most prized arm of all to his collection (a feeling that Mir would later refuse to go into detail about, but we imagine felt something like this), and Jon Jones used his Stretch Armstrong genetics to choke out a Jiu Jitsu black belt in Lyoto Machida with relative ease. And with each beautiful, gruesome, or eye opening technique that graces the octagon, Ryron and Rener are here to make sense of it all.

Today, the Gracie brothers touch on Tony Ferguson’s slick omaplata attempt from his unanimous decision victory over Yves Edwards at the TUF 14 Finale as well as Brandao’s glass plaque-earning effort before breaking down possibly the most shocking submission finish in MMA history, Frank Mir’s come from behind kimura over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria that absolutely destroyed the Brazilian’s arm:

(Props to for the photo.) 

Ho. Lee. Shit. Only a man who has been run over by a truck as a child can look at an injury as horrifying as that with the approximate concern of someone who just lost the page in the book they were reading. Anyway, check out the video and learn yourself some BJJ, because we all know what your face would look like if this happened to you.

Also on this week’s breakdown, the Gracie’s discuss UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ Mckenzietine-esque choke that, currently according to Wikipedia, killed Lyoto Machida. What I want to know is, who the hell was that guy at the post-fight press conference? Begin drafting up your conspiracy theories…NOW!

Absolutely destroyed Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria arm is a bit of stretch, its simple broke. Unless the tendons, nerves, and muscles got damaged, he should be able to return to rebuilding the strength in a month of two.
As for picture above of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria checking out the damage with no emotion, classic.

As Soldier of Fortune says on their "t" shirt: "He (Nogueria) is a man, amongst men."
