After six exciting matches at Metamoris 4, Ryron and Rener received tons of requests for a Gracie Breakdown. Of all the matches, the most requested breakdown was the headlock/neck crank/chest compression technique that Josh Barnett used to submit the "unsubmittable" Dean Lister. Watch as Ryron and Rener analyze the strengths of the technique, and then teach you an essential training exercise you can use to sharpen your defensive skills and avoid the crush if you ever find yourself beneath a much heavier opponent who has a Catch Wrestling background!
