UFC Fighter Bryce Mitchell Finishes Matt Sayles With Rare 'Twister' Submission

UFC Fighter Bryce Mitchell Finishes Matt Sayles With Rare 'Twister' Submission

Bryce Mitchell gave UFC fans something to remember last night after finishing Matt Sayles with an incredibly rare 'twister' submission.

Mitchell came out on top at UFC on ESPN 7 in the very first round after locking in the unique submission maneuver on his opponent.

Check out the video below.


The 'twister' is one of MMA's most devastating submission techniques due to the pressure it puts on the neck and spine.

It's the first time in eight years that the move has won a match, with 'The Korean Zombie' Chan Sung Jung defeating Leonard Garcia with it at UFC Fight Night 24.

Fans on Twitter reacted to seeing the legendary move.




'Thug Nasty' played his opponent to perfection as he countered Sayles' limp kick down the middle.

He transitioned from an arm-triangle choke onto his back and then locked in the deadly move.

Using the move also netted the 25-year-old a cool $50,000 bonus for earning 'Performance of the Night'.

Last nights victory makes it his third in a row and the young prospect is now 12-0.

Yesterdays event also featured a grotesque injury to Alistair Overeem.

Overeem was facing off against Jairzinho Rozenstruik at the event who landed a huge right hand to split his lip.

It was an event filled night in Washington D.C.
