oh lord that was craziness, it kinda looked like Imada's leg was under Masdival's chin, so it could have been like a gogoplata rather than a triangle, either way it was outstandingly awesome.

his leg is under his chin that doesnt make it a gogo, a gogoplata is when you use the instep or shin of your foot to choke someone while pulling the opponent's head down with out having you legs in a triangle position

That was wild! Why would he not just sit down on Imadas head?

yeah i know, i was just thinking that it could have been Imada's leg pressing against Masdival's throat that caused the choke (like a gogoplata) rather than his own arm pressing against his neck. but i watched it again and it definetely was a triangle lol

Wow.. I didn't expect it to be like this at all I've managed to land an inverted triangle before, but that was on the ground and it was a once in a lifetime submission. This, standing... and in the middle of an MMA match?! Incredible!

By the looks of it Jorge was having his way with Imada as well. Bellator had high hopes for a Jorge and Eddie facing off for the belt. I think given the beating he took, the method of submission, and the context of the fight Imada is definitely in line for a Showstopper of the Year ESPY lol.
