Alexei Oleynik and Mark Hunt are squaring off tomorrow for the UFC’s inaugural event in Russia. Before they can commence with the face punching, they, and everyone else on the card had to weigh in and square off.

The Gracie Breakdown: Ezekiel Choke

This past Sunday Alexei Oleynik blew our minds when he submitted Viktor Pesta. Pesta had full mount on Oleynik and was submitted by Ezekiel choke. Off the top of most of our heads, no one can remember the last time someone hit a submission while mounted in MMA. Thanks to the Rener and Ryron Gracie, we get the Gracie Breakdown and their analysis of the choke. Average Joe’s Gym owner Vince Vaughn is their special gues,t in this Gracie Breakdown video.

Ryron and Rener explain how the choke was set up, as well as the possible ways to escape. Fascinating stuff from the brothers.
