[VIDEO] This Flying Armbar is the Greatest Submission of 2013 So Far, Bar None.

We may be only a few months into 2013, but the list of potential Potato Award recipients is quickly filling up like it’s going out of style. We already have a strong frontrunner for “Flop of the Year” in Nick “Turbo Tax” Capes, and just last week, we introduced the greatest knockout of the year, “The Skywalker Crotchcracker” (a.k.a The Spinning Harold Howard, The McSleepytime Falcon Roundhouse, or The Over-the-Shoulder-Boulder-Holder).

And although the fight in which Olivier Fontaine was able to pull of this absolutely insane flying armbar actually went down in early February, the video of said armbar has only recently started making its way around the MMA blogosphere. We’ve thrown a full video of the fight above, but skip to the 1:28 mark to see just what we’re talking about.

After Sofian Benchohra manages to snatch up one of Fontaine’s legs on an attempted body kick, you assume Fontaine is seconds away from an always demoralizing leg sweep. WRONG. Fontaine counters with a beautiful spinning, flying armbar — almost a somersault armbar, if you will — that Gina Carano couldn’t pull off with all of the stunt coordinators in the world in her corner. After a brief struggle, Fontaine secures the tap shortly thereafter. Good night, my anus.

The win improved Fontaine’s record to 4-2 and accounted for Benchohra’s 6th loss in his last 7 contests. Thankfully for Benchohra, next to no one will ever find out about this particularly depressing loss.

Shit.

    That move is from Traditional, and Sport Jiu-Jitsu, (the kind with striking, which unfortunately been all but forgotten thanks to the Gracies) I remember it as "Kicker's Revenge" from a Black Belt magazine techniques article about 10 years ago,but I'm sure there is a technical name for the technique. Never seen it in real life, cheers to Sofian for pulling that off, that was slick as hell.

    Dude is lucky that he didn't knock himself out Matt Lindland style. Watch again and see how he breaks his fall with his own face.
