Possibly the most brutal choke in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu history took place at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam event in Tokyo back in July.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner Alexandre Vieira choked his opponent out cold with a loop choke. What made the choke more devastating is that Vieira managed to get his opponent in a fireman’s carry position while choking him unconscious.
When Vieira let go of his opponent, he dropped down to the mat and was motionless. With his opponent flat on the mat, the referee awarded Vieira the submission victory.
In the video below, you can see Vieira secure this brutal, and yet amazing, choke at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam.
