GIF Overload: The Submissions (Part 3)


Here it is, folks, the final part of the submission GIF feature. Masakazu Imanari opens up the action at Cage Rage 25. His opponent Jean Silva tried an appeal to the gods of irony when he attempted a leglock on a man known for little else. Imanari countered with a sacrifice to the gods of "What were you thinking?" On top of that we've got a ton of action coming out of Japan from Dream and Sengoku, as well as Bellator and Shooto.

  • Jacare shows us why it's never a good idea to play with alligators.
  • Shinya Aoki doesn't care if you tuck your chin
  • Siyar Bahadurzada can't knock you out while defending a heel hook.
  • Takanori Gomi will wait patiently for you to finish a leg lock.

There's a ton of great action after the jump brought to you by Zombie Prophet. T.P. Grant helps out with commentary on the GIF's, too. And in case you missed the first two parts:
