Kurt Angle’s Signature Move Ends Recent MMA Fight

One mixed martial artist decided to channel his inner WWE wrestler on Saturday night, Nov. 25.

The Absolute Championship Berkut hosted ACB 75 in Germany on Saturday with a series of mixed martial arts performances. Among them, Coner Hignett faced off against Frederico Gutzwiller in an interesting match up that has some fight fans talking.

Hignett found himself in a leg lock attempt from his opponent. Hignett was in the standing position and not losing his cool. Instead, the fighter pulled off a move reminiscent of WWE superstar Kurt Angle when he heel hooked the fighter from the standing position.

Watch Hignett get a win over his opponent with the unexpected submission in the video above.

Hignett is now 5-2 in his mixed martial arts career. The fighter earned a submission victory over Jake Bond at Tanko Fighting Championships 4 prior to taking out Frederico Gutzwiller at ACB 75.
