Depending on how someone has the choke sunk in, it can either cut off the blood or the air supply. I think he's refering to cutting off the blood when he says he can't be choked out. So it's possible he had to tap to that one because he couldn't breathe, I haven't seen that fight, so I can't really say.
And depending how you have a choke sunk in, a RNC could still be an air choke if it's not applied properly and you end up with more of the forearm on the throat. Also, we're talking about his first MMA fight, so he may have either not known about this weird ability, or he might have panicked that he got caught in something and tapped. Has anyone who has actually seen this fight let us know how it went down? If there's anyone out there who's seen RFC 1.
