Gracie Breakdown: Pettis Submits Henderson

This past weekend at UFC 164 Anthony Pettis shocked the MMA world with an amazing 1st round armbar submission over Benson Henderson.  The victory crowned Pettis the new UFC Lightweight Champion and brought the reign of Benson Henderson to a dramatic conclusion.  While it is not all that shocking that Pettis beat Henderson, the manner in which he did so is.  Pettis is known primarily for his dynamic striking attacks, and Henderson just recently earned his BJJ black belt.  If anything, this fight provides a big lesson to all fighters about the effectiveness of BJJ and its ability to end fights from anywhere at anytime. 

Check out this all new Gracie Breakdown, which gives a very technical analysis of the submission.
