    Nice….I love when people say that the twister can never be used in MMA.

    Kiss my ass please ;-). I remember when Shayna Blazer hitting the twister from the back in her fight…money!

    Oh shit!!! He busted the DefCon 4!!! You guys are lucky I created the universe with my magical powers.

    Ari, that was actually the “Cobra Twist” that Baszler hit, that’s a totally different move. Josh Barnett would be happy to tell you all about it, I’m sure.

    If his grip was a little higher up on the guy’s head, so he could get more leverage, that would have been a for sure tap.

    Am I wrong?

    Dave:

    If the Cobra Twist is getting the twister from back control, then it is the cobra twist! We call it the Chevy (getting the twister from back control)

    Eddie told me that Baszler asked him to help her with some twister stuff before that fight. I am sure Josh is well versed in all that too but my point (I think) is that was a twister pulled off in competition no matter what you call it (twister, cobra twist or what it really is-the guillotine from wrestling!)

    Names suck-results matter ;-)

    Here is her fight..she hits it at the 2:40 mark of this video.

    (note: CACC and jits have a lot of moves that are the same but use different names. I personally don’t care what you call it but if it works….that is the point).

    I personally love stuff from CACC, Sambo, BJJ, 10thP…whatever is going to help my skill set…I’ll use it ;-)

    I was just kidding. I was trying to make a joke about how Barnett refuses to use any term that Eddie uses. I guess it wasn’t very effective.

    I was watching a run of this on the ol’ boob tube the other day and I was standing and shouting “FUCKING TWISTER, FUCKING YES… DO IT! DO IT! FUCK YEAH, DEFCON4! MAKE HIM TAP!”

    Laugh,,I was wondering if you were being sarcastic Dave. Sometimes it is very hard to get the gist (or the tone) in what someone writes.

    My bad…may the jokes continue….
