* #5 Toby Imada's inverted triangle submission over Jorge Masvidal *
Over the course of ten weeks, this Top Ten Submission series will show full breakdowns of some of the most technically beautiful, and complicated submissions of all time. Broken down by extremely talented Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Noah Arnold Tillis, owner and head instructor at Tillis Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The #5 ranked submission on this list is surely one for the most obscure, yet awesome to ever grace the sport. Masvidal went for a takedown, Imada, nearly went over the back of Masvidal, in the process locked in the triangle to keep from going over. Masvidal stood up and Imada continued to hold the position, and tighten, choking Masvidal unconscious as he fell to the canvas.
Noah breaks down everything in succession from the attempted takedown, to the lock of the triangle, and finish of the fight.
This submission occurred during the third round in their bout at Bellator 5 which took place on May 1, 2009.
