I remember that now. Indeed if he did not kill nobody with those hydraulic power cranks it means the technique is not that dangerous and that was the info/opinion I wanted from you guys.

It's a perfectly legal move today, but if you consider Big Nog had his arm broken for delaying the tap and also Miesha Tate had her arm trashed for the same reason, Rick Story could be very dead right now or paralized forever if delayed the tap. What if he went out in the process and suddenly relaxed his muscles?

The scary name says it all: Neck crank.

What do you think?

If neck cranks were made legal, we'd need the services of the advertising sponsor of this thread more often.

They are legal. I never voted to be illegal. I was merely asking opinions.

If it was a street fight and UFC 11 era Coleman wanted to kill someone with a neck crank, he absolutely could. It would be interesting to see him catch a Gracie in a can opener because they never tap out.

They are already legal, and every time you refresh the page you'll probably get different ads and sponsors, depending on your location etc., so you pretty much made zero sense .

I dunno about mythbusters, but you are correct it would take superhuman strength and torque to snap someone's neck like that.
