Toby Imada's Amazing "Sub Of The Year" Candidate Was "No Accident"



When asked about his amazing unside down inverted triangle choke of Jorge Masvidal Imada basically says that it's a move that he frequently practices.

Quote:
Itís something that Iíve 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 thatís pretty much a gimme. So right there, I just went for it and he didnít 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.

Initially, I was like, ĎOkay, I see it; let me try and go for it.í It went from there to, ĎOkay, lock it up.í To, ĎOkay, I got it locked up.í I just grabbed the hip, arch, pull and just hold. Itís not really strangulation where the guy canít breathe; itís one of those things where the guy goes to sleep. Just like I said, Iíve done it a bunch of times before. Iíve been able to do it on really high-caliber grapplers and I just knew what to do.
Damn, he sure pulled it off. I don't see another submission able to knock that one off in '09.

I had a feeling. He locked that up way too quickly to have done it by mistake. And I think the sub is a lock for submission of the year.

It was so sick watching it. It certainly looked like he knew what he was doing. Props to Imada.

I have to give in an say that he did sink that choke in like he's had practice. It is a damn beautiful MMA moment.

It has quickly become one of my favorites.
