The Best Submissions Of 2016 #5: Martin Nguyen’s Guillotine Choke

18-year-old Christian Lee had dominated and stopped every opponent he had shared the cage with up to this point, and as his star continued to rise, more fans clamored for a tough matchup for the young prospect. They wanted a real challenge, someone who could push Lee to the limit and really test his ability.

Fans got that in the form of former ONE Featherweight World Championship title contender, Martin Nguyen, and the Australian certainly lived up to that billing at ONE: HEROES OF THE WORLD.

Lee has an unusual striking stance that leaves much of his chin exposed in stand-up exchanges. Against a seasoned veteran like Nguyen, this proved to be his undoing. As Lee pressed the action, stalking Nguyen up against the cage fence, Nguyen realized that countering was the way to go.

As Lee aggressively forced the action, a sharp left hand from Nguyen staggered the young lion, and he was simply unable to recover. Immediately after, Nguyen grabbed a hold of Lee’s neck in a powerful guillotine choke and never let go.

Every time Lee attempted to break free, Nguyen would reestablish his grip by changing levels, and it soon became evident that Lee was in a whole world of trouble. It was not long until Lee ended up taking a nap in the process.
