Ryron & Rener Gracie Explain Why The Stoppage On Ben Askren’s Bulldog Choke Was A Good Call


Ben Askren submitted Robbie Lawler this past weekend at UFC 235 with a controversial bulldog choke that many have since called a ‘bad call.’ In this edition of Gracie Breakdown, Rener and Ryron defend Herb Dean’s choice of stoppage based on official UFC protocol, citing the mechanics of the choke as to why Robbie Lawler was going out.

They also go over a different mount hip-thrust escape variation that Tyron Woodley could have employed in his loss to Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title.

Finally, they discuss the idea that a lack in unified MMA rule sets from state to state created an unreasonable burden on Jon Jones with regards to criticism he received for an illegal knee to the head against Anthony Smith.

Take a look and see if you agree with what they say:
