With a ton of combat sports happening on each week, a lot of interesting moves and crazy finishes tend to slip through the cracks as people naturally pay more attention to the bigger events. This “Finish of the Week” feature is designed to put a spotlight on some of those wild moments that you may have missed.
FINISH OF THE WEEK: SULOEV STRETCH!
This inaugural “Finish of the Week” honors goes to Khusein Shaikhaev, who pulled off a somewhat rare and pretty brutal submission at ACA 102. In the first round of his bantamweight bout against Erzhan Estanov, the undefeated fighter locked up a Suloev stretch and cranked on that hamstring.
Shaikhaev, who is still only 22-years-old, improved his unbeaten record to 8-0.
