MMA villain Chael Sonnen and BJJ nice guy Bernardo Faria are maybe not the most obvious pair, but they teamed up for this “surprise grappling attack” tutorial breaking down an ankle lock taken straight from the Gospel According to Shogun.
The technique starts on the feet, when your opponent is expecting the takedown. Positioning your feet inside your opponent’s stance, you’ll sit to the mat and rotate while hooking their leg into 50/50. As quick as possible hook their heel, get your grip, and lean back for the tap.
Now accepting pitches for the the plot of the buddy cop film to star Sonnen and Faria.
