When Chan Sung Jung submitted Leonard Garcia with a twister back on March 26 at UFC Fight Night 24: "Nogueira vs. Davis," it broke a two-fight skid and gave him just his second win in five fights.

And, not to get greedy or anything, but he feels like he deserves a nice little step up in the featherweight division because of it. He made this clear with a short, but sweet, tweet:

I think Jung gets beat down by Hominick. Prolly 1st or 2nd Rd Tko.

Bad call for Mr. Zombie. Don't think his chin could last against Hominick for three rounds. Exciting match-up, though.

I love that the Zombie has his sights set for the top. I'm not sure he'll fare all that well against Hominick, but if he were to beat him he would skyrocket up the rankings. I would imagine this would be a pretty awesome fight no matter the outcome, so I hope the UFC likes this idea. Hominick seems to think it's a great idea.

Because of how thin 145 is compared to the other divisions this fight kind of makes sense. The ufc would like to get Mark a win to build him back up and right now Jung is coming off a big televised main card win in which he used a very rare submission. It would be an exciting fight and would probably help fill out a main card for a fight night for spike or vs, or a prelim spot before a ppv. I like the fight make it happen.

I hope the fight happens. It would be a great fight to watch. I say Hominick would earn the stoppage but it would be exciting the whole way through.

Everyone is counting out the Zombie too quickly. Besides, that twister was nothing short of amazing.

No it wasn't. A "twister" in MMA is the quivolent to a "Guiloteen" in collegiate wrestling. (BTW a twister in wrestling basically means an Anaconda choke lol)

Anyhow, its easy to get, and can be gotten on anybody who is not a superb wrestler as long as the fighter has one hook in (normally from back control).

The reason you don't see it is because it doesn't work. Its very painful, but thats just it, its a pain move. Like a can opener. The majority of fighters in the UFC wont tap to that.

There is no threat of going to sleep and no threat of anything breaking except maybe their nose depending on the lock.

In all reality if the fighter has anyheart he'll endur eit, eventually get out when the top man arms tire, or he eventually6 scrambles out. If he is too tired to fight he can just sit there and take it until the next round. His neck will be sore, but he will be alright.

Garcia just didn't know the move or what was happening. He felt the pain and his position and thought that serious damange could be done if he did not get out of it (which he could not). So he tapped. Either than or he simply has no heart, which I hope isn't the case...and from his previous fights I don't think it was.

I think it was just ignorance. Especially because there ws like a second left on the clock;. If he did tap just due to the pain then well...

How can you call something easy that has never been done in the octagon.
it is most certainly not easy to get a twister, or whatever you want to call it.

This is extremely inaccurate. It's fairly clear that you have no idea what you are talking about.
