Check out this gnarly Vedepo Choke from Bellator 80

It’s called a ‘Vedepo Choke’ because Joe Vedepo invented it at Bellator 80 on Friday night. If you caught Bellator 80 live, you witnessed a new submission introduced to the world of mixed martial arts — and it involved a very annoying shin shoved directly into the throat of Mike Bernhard. Vedepo Choke doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but if someone’s shin is shoved in your neck, everything will have difficulty rolling off your tongue.

After Joe Vedepo executed a choke that he invented, he calmly strolled off and walked around the Bellator cage as if he wanted to tell everyone inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino a joke but forgot the punchline. Props to Vedepo on an amazing win and teaching the MMA world that the power of the shin is an underutilized tool.
