Let’s be honest here: if you’re given a choice between a “normal” technique and a technique that makes your opponent super uncomfortable, most of us will take the latter.
That’s exactly what this half-guard pass-to-submission by NOLA MMA coach Ray Lopez achieves. You might remember Lopez as the guy who rolled for 24 hours straight to raise money for his wife, Kimberly Kaye Lopez, who’s fighting a rare and expensive illness called CIPO (You can donate to Kim’s medical fund here). In other words, this guy pretty much sets the standard for toughness, and you can rest assured that this technique accomplishes what it sets out to do.
