Rener Gracie and Ryron Gracie of Gracie University and Professors at the Gracie Academy breakdown what happened at UFC 235 with Ben Askren and Robbie Lawler.
In case you missed the fight Ben Askren started out with a near takedown to Robbie Lawler’s back. Robbie Lawler lifted Ben up and slammed him to get out of the situation. Then he landed some serious strikes on Ben that nearly put him away.
Askren scrambled back to a situation to get a choke and Robbie tried to slip out and landed in a bulldog choke. The question is was referee Herb Dean wise to stop the fight.
Rener and Ryron Gracie answer this question with their opinions and then analyze the way to escape the choke. They end by talking about other fighters on the card including the amazing mount control of Kamaru Usman, and the illegal knee by Jon Jones.
