Let's say you are Rousimar Palhares, and you are facing Nate Marquardt. Let's say you have a killer submission move in the heel hook. You have won your last two fights with this. This is your Anglelock. Your Figure Four. Now let's say you go for this move three minutes into the first round.

If, by some odd happenstance, Marquardt easily escapes the hold, do not -- DO NOT -- stop fighting, look to your corner, and gesture to Nate's legs as if he has employed some cheat, perhaps grease. This will remove Marquardt from your necessary and immediate attention, and he will knock you the fuck out.

Palhares did so, and I was shocked that he would call a passive time-out like this. Shocked more that he didn't gesture toward the ref. The fight continued without his focus, and Nate found no defense for a right bomb. Blammo. Pummeling. Fight over. Palhares protested to Nate, but Joe Rogan began the post-fight interview by saying the ref and doctor checked Nate and found nothing. "There is no controversy," Joe said. That might be the quickest evasion and KO, I've seen in MMA.

Charles Oliveria got a dandy choke submission on Efrain Escudero. Rogan noted that the replay showed Oliveria didn't even have the throat, but his torque was enough to get the tapout.

Jim Miller landed enough solid shots to win a decision over Gleison Tibau. Cole Miller followed a solid chin shot with a choke submission on Ross Pearson.

A pretty good show.

Maybe he and Patrick "That was a pilerdriv--*CHOKE*" Cote can start a support group.

Cole Miller you are a hero. I've been wondering forever why guys wail away at grounded opponents who have their hands up, instead of slapping a submission on their groggy asses.
