What should Aoki's new submission be called?

I'm ripping off Bloodyelbow's poll but thanks to ZZtigerZZ81's new edition I thought it worth seeing what anyone else wanted to call it.

What should Aoki's new submission be called?

Top-mount omoplata shoulderlock

Reverse gogoplata



(thanks to ZZtigerZZ81 for this one )

I don't know what to call it


I'm torn between Shinyacana and Aokiplata.

Has anybody ever finished an MMA match with a Gogo from the mount before? If not then Aokiplata all the way.

It's weird because Ironman was just going on about the Gogoplata from mount before this fight.

It's a gogoplata. If you get someone in a gilotene and then roll over is it suddenly a different move? What did Nog get Tim with? A NOGatine? Did Takase submit silva with a TAKiangle? It's the same thing, just set up differently.

Formally, it's still a gogoplata from mount, but aokiplata just rolls off the tongue. So, AOKIPLATA all the way!

It is not really a full gogoplata though right? I mean he didn't need to have the other leg to block the arm from breaking the choke.

I still stand by Shinyacana. Only because I came up with it and I think you guys should be a part of this new terminology. Afterall, this is how language is created.

I would rep you Walker for the recognition but I apparently have given out too much rep in the last 24 hrs. Get ya lata.

I'm calling it an Aokiplata since it's not the same move as a gogoplata. So I think since Aoki's the first guy I've seen do it he should have it named after him.

IMO there isnt nearly enough words that end in plata im happy to call it the aokiplata its just so cool to say

Also id love if it caught on because i can imagine rogan shouting for it every time someone gets knocked off balance while in a mount
