The Pimp Choke needs to be brought back into MMA! What better way to establish ultimate male dominance then Pimp Choking your opponent? None I tell you! None!

A win may be a win, but what a dodge choke... was it with his hand or with the thumb? Or did he grab and squeeze?

Marcelo Garcia taps out a ton of people with this choke (in the academy).

I was hoping he would do it at ADCC, thus further popularizing the choke.

But, he went for the North South choke instead.

I don't think it's allowed.

I swear to god, I can't imagine many worse things than Tom Erikson having full grapevine mount on me. Can you imagine carrying a refrigerator in your guard?

The Ted Bundy Choke

That is ghey wahy ghey....

31 is a foul I dont understand.

FYI, the rape choke is two-handed.

that guy on the bottom shouldn't try to move his hips or anything

As long as a fighter doesn't SQUEEZE THE TRACHEA it's a legal choke. It
hurts like hell whether they squeeze or not though.

1 handed = Pimp Choke = Rape Choke

2 handed = Domestic Violence Choke

"#31 is a foul I dont understand. "

Tom Erikson has mastered the Pimp Choke! Nobody can defend his Pimp Choke!
