Chael Sonnen talks Ricky Simon’s controversial choke against Merab Dvalishvili

UFC Atlantic City’s match between Ricky Simon and Merab Dvalishvili ended in the latest stoppage in UFC history. Ricky Simon overcame adversity to submit Merab Dvalishvili at the buzzer with a mounted guillotine choke. Chael Sonnen gives his thoughts on his You’re Welcome podcast.


  1. His legs never stopped kicking. I don't see why this is even up for debate. If he ever went unconcious at any point his legs would have gone limp.

  2. Dvalishvili looked pure WWE when his legs were going like that! Then you wonder why people think MMA is fake.

  3. I'm guessing he wasn't hand fighting because it's easier to put your chin to your neck and tense up your neck if you hold your hands out and squeeze. So he was simply defending another way I think than what is traditionally done.
