UFC 173: Barao Breakdown

In anticipation of the upcoming UFC 173, the UFC has partnered up with the Gracie brothers, Rener and Ryron, to provide a highly technical breakdown of bantamweight champion Renan Barao’s signature submission, the arm triangle.  In his title defense against Michael McDonald at UFC on FUEL TV 7, Barao demonstrated world class jiu-jitsu skills by earning the victory via arm triangle submission.  The way in which Barao set up the submission by transitioning from the back control position was a true work of art.  In this video, we get a step by step breakdown of exactly how Barao did it.  Check it out below.
