MMA in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers?

OK, please take this thread for what it is. This is a fun thread, no flaming please.

So, I was watching some TV with the kiddies this weekend. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers was on. There was a scene where Gollum (Smeagol) attacked Frodo to try and take the ring. Sam kept trying to pull him off of Frodo. Finally he grabbed his leg and was pulling him away. Gollum turned around and bit Sam on the shoulder. (This is where the MMA comes in ). Gollum (Smeagol) clearly rolls and takes Sam's back. Then he sinks in both hooks and starts applying a rear naked choke until Frodo pulls a sword and stops it.

So, yeah I know this is weird, but I wonder if the producers are MMA fans and included this intentionally. Or, I wonder if this was a huge coincedence? It is very clear that he took his back and then sunk in both hooks. Sam was even defending the rear naked choke.

If anyone has the movie, check it out and let me know what you think. I may have been training too much and might be a little .

Let me know your thoughts!

I actually noticed this as well. Actually, there is a guy at my gym who always reminded me of Smeagol the way he takes people's backs.
