ADCC 2011: The day Toquinho “subbed” twice in one match

Share it

In England, at ADCC 2011 UFC fighter Rousimar Toquinho showcased just why he’s a born finisher, nabbing people with his heelhook left and right.

In this riveting under-88kg-division match against David Avellan, once again the Minas Gerais, Brazil native celebrated finishing a single matchup twice, just like he’s done before in the octagon. For all the ins and outs of ADCC 2011, only in GRACIEMAG. (With the collaboration of Junior Samurai)

    I love ya gracie mag but c’mon…Toquinho didnt’ sub Avellan twice. Toquinho had a heel hook on, when Avellan rolled out of bounds. Adcc rules say the competitors can roll out bounds “once” to flee a submission, without any point deduction. The referee clearly stopped the action after they rolled out of bounds, as you can see in the video. But for some reason, Toquinho got confused and started to torque on Avellan’s heel again. Avellan had already stopped defending against the heal hook because the ref stopped them. The action had been stopped when Toquinho started to crank on Avellan’s heel again.

    After that weird spastic incident by Toquinho, the fighters were started in a completely different (advantageous to Toquinho) heel hook position. Avellan should never have agreed to that new position. But he did, and he got subbed. Once.

    I like Toquinho, and I’m not even a David Avellan fan. I just hate to see bad coverage of an event. The way that match happened was poor, in terms of Toquinho’s actions when the ref had already stopped them, and in terms of the referee’s restart of the action. If you watch the video, you can clearly see all of this.

    So, next time Gracie Mag, watch the video before you give it a title.

    GRACIEMAG THIS ISNT MMA! NORMALLY PUTTING UR HANDS ON A GUY WILL END THE ACTION. ARE U SAYING THAT THE REF HAD TO WRESTLE AWAY PAUL HARRIS’ GRIP TO END A SUBMISSION HOLD THAT IS OUT OF BOUNDS? THIS WASNT A CAGE FIGHT WERE PEOPLE ARE GETTING HIT AND ARE BLEEDING IT WAS A QUIET GRAPPLING TOURNAMENT. I AGREE WITH BAD TTITLE! IF AVELLAN WAS BRAZILIAN AND PAUL HARRIS AMERICAN I WONDER HOW YOUR TITLE WOULD BE
