Chokes from the front headlock position: there are many. Names for chokes from the front headlock position: there are more. It’s enough to make you second-guess yourself while you’re at the bar in your Affliction shirt and you see a fighter shoot his arm under his opponent’s neck for a choke. Is it a Brabo?

Although changing into a CP shirt would have helped a lot. Just sayin’.
