Rani Yahya used a north south choke to submit Josh Grispi on UFC on Fuel, the prelims to UFC on Fox 4, August 4th. Joe Rogan was thoroughly impressed, as Grispi was forced to tap to Yahya from a variation of the choke, called the Monson Choke, named after fighter, Jeff Monson. In this variation the choke, a special grip is used to bring the opponents neck up off the mat into the lat. It doesn’t matter if the arm is in or out. Here’s an example of the grip he used, I show it without the arm in, but it makes no difference, the choke works exactly the same. Take a look!
