Redbelt picture

Deliberate mistake: In the final fight, two master Brazil Jujitsu fighters, one an instructor and the other a champion, execute rear naked chokes without the requisite body locks, using the legs to control the body. In the first case, Mike was able to escape the choke by flipping backwards, which a body lock prevents. In the second case, Mike was able to strangle Silva even though any trained fighter could prevent it by simply twisting their body. (01:30:00)
