MMA News: [Watch] Sotaro Yamada showcases terrifying double submission to finish fight
Mixed Martial Arts can be a scary sport. There are some fighters with whom it is terrifying to enter the cage. Sotaro Yamada is just such a fighter. At Quintet Fight Night 4, the Japanese veteran fighter was competing as a part of Team Carpe Diem.
In the event, Team Carpe Diem was victorious in the Saturday Night event, which was telecast on UFC Fight Pass.
During the night, Yamada would grapple four times, and in three of them, against Gyeongseop Lee, Yoichi Fukumoto, and Youngseung Cho, he made his opponents submit, while in the other, against Jun Yong Cho, he drew.
However, the submission that is creating headlines is the one that can be seen below. It was against Team K-Top BJJ's Lee that he was extraordinary. He reversed a leg lock attempt by Lee before he then went on to lock in an instant Rear Naked Choke with apparently no difficulty.
However, he was not done there.
While he was locking in the Rear Naked Choke, which was also a neck crank, he was also using his feet very judicially. He used his feet to lock in the calf slicer below. The opponent waited perhaps three seconds, before realizing the precarious situation he was in.
The move was so perfect, it gave Lee no splace to move, as he was pushed against the ground as well.
