Last week we were handed some confusingly awesome MMA action without the need to overdraft our bank accounts with those PPV fees. UFC on FX: Alves vs. Kampmann and Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey aired within a 24-hour time span, giving us some gnarly cuts, epic come-from-behind victories, questionable punches, and an armbar so powerful that it could break horrible AMC The Walking Dead plot lines.
This year we started a new feature in which Scottie Epstein from 10th Planet West LA breaks down MMA events and the possible submissions that could have occurred. It’s called ‘Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda’ and this episode we analyzed the potential submissions that could have taken place during Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey and UFC on FX: Alves vs. Kampmann.
If you live in the Los Angeles area, be sure to take a visit down to 10th Planet West LA. Classes are offered for all levels, even the guys that sit on their couch and scream a submission is locked when it really isn’t. Check out their website here. Besides, it has the smoothest logo in all of jiu-jitsu. If you tell them MiddleEasy referred you, your first class is free. Be sure to follow Scottie Epstein on Twitter at @scottiemc2.
