Prior to Bellator 38, Richard Hale never even practiced an inverted triangle

Richard Hale drilled for months and months on the inverted-triangle choke, set up a game plan to use it, and then executed with precision the submission hold to put Nike Fekete to sleep this past Saturday at Bellator 38.

Actually, that's a lie. He saw the move the night before weigh-ins on YouTube and thought it would be cool to give it a go. (Watch Hale's inverted-triangle choke.)

"I've never even thrown an inverted triangle before," Hale (16-3 MMA, 1-0 BFC) today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio).

Ironically, he's now in the company of the fighter he scoped that night, Toby Imada, as the video clip of his stunning submission makes Internet rounds.

To top it off, he gets a ticket to the semifinals of Bellator's season-four light heavyweight tournament, where he'll meet D.J. Linderman at Bellator 42.

I just started watching Bellator, since their move to MTV2. I love their tournament format. I'm also looking forward to getting my first glimpse of Eddie Alvarez this weekend.

I started watching Bellator last year and fell in love with it. I really enjoy the tournament style fighting, and so far they haven't disappointed me. Last year they not only had a candidate for Knockout Of The Year, but Submission Of The Year as well (Which happened to be Toby Imada's inverted triangle.) I hope you enjoy seeing Alvarez fight. He's one of my favorite Lightweights and I hope sometime in the near future he will make his way to the UFC.

Bellator is honestly my favorite organization, at least the format is. I love that I get a free fight card every week. I hope they can stay profitable.
