The rear naked choke was the star of the weekend.
After Miesha Tate and Nate Diaz used the technique to end their fights at UFC 196, we decided to go after one of the most important ones in Jiu-Jitsu history.
In 2005, Roger Gracie won the open class division with a textbook RNC on Ronaldo Jacaré.
Click play and watch how Jacaré’s reaction was similar to Holly Holm’s, when he tried to stand up and escape the back take and didn’t protect his neck properly.
Just like this Saturday in Las Vegas, once the arm goes under the neck, it’s over!
