Shamrock immediately grabs a hold of Rich's leg and takes him down..people should actually watch fights.
Sure thing...you MMA watching superstar you!

I've never seen a heel hook attempt where an individual actually just flops to the ground...there was literally no technique used in the .gif I posted, it looks like he flat out flopped and his arm happened to be where Rich's lead leg was. I mean it's possible you're correct, but I'm still skeptical...it wouldn't shock me if Shamrock took a little extra on the side(not from Rich or his camp, Franklin seems as legit as they come)...and this fight ended in the 1st round, about 1:30 after this.
