The MMA Trivia thread!

Alright, I got a lil bit of vbookie points, so I say I can award small amounts (like 50k) for each answer, however, a more interesting idea I had was to do a point system where the winner would win 1 million credits(woo! >_>) first to 20 wins.

The points I think will be done based on their relative difficulty with reference to obscurity, age, and that sort of thing....from 1 point all the way up to a whopping 5.


I'll start off easy so not to alienate the users before it even gets off its feet. For the tougher ones I'll occasionally drop hints.



Question 1: (1 point) This Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran gave another the first submission loss of his career with a signature shoulder lock that has since been named after himself. Who is he?

I believe this is correct. And the fighter he used his "Mir lock" against was Pete Williams.

This UFC veteran had a notable fight in which he executed a "Giant Swing" in an MMA fight he would win by submission. Name the fighter and his opponent.

i have never heard of it as a Mir lock.... its a shoulder crank that Mir landed

if your gonna have a trivia thread... atleast be correct...


Jason Von Flue landed a modified side/triangle choke that no one ever seen before, and is now called a Von Flue Choke. no one calls it a Mir Lock... its a shoulder crank... just made more famous by Mir.
