I don't come over this way very often, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned this, as I know more than a few serious fight fans on here. Did anyone see this fight? very active with great jujitsu work, absolute great bout, IMVHO.
This has to be one of the top 2, hell maybe the best submission I've ever seen. Certainly the rarest.

From an interview....
Was there a point in the fight that you realized you could pull off that move or did the situation just fall into your lap?
It's something that I've always trained. Whenever I get put in a certain situation, I always want to have a few moves I can execute. It just so happened that I ended up with Masvidal holding the single-leg on me and that's pretty much a gimme. So right there, I just went for it and he didn't try to get out; he kind of just stood up. So I locked it up and I finished it, just like I did in training a bunch of times before.
I especially love the casual way he says "Masvidal held the single-leg...and that's pretty much a gimme." Gimme, huh? Things like this make me drool for the next stage of MMA evolution.
