Alexandr Romanov Puts Opponent To Sleep With Forearm At UFC Fight Night: Santos Vs. Teixeira

One of the more surprising UFC finishes we’ve seen happened tonight at the hands (or rather, the arm) of Alexandr Romanov.

Romanov’s fight with Marcos Rogério de Lima was a quick one, coming down to the last few seconds of the first round. Although de Lima had Romanov locked up in his half-guard, Romanov pressured forward and locked his arms around his opponent’s shoulder, driving his forearm into de Lima’s throat. The methodology was simple, but it worked — de Lima went to sleep, giving Romanov the win with just twelve seconds left in the first round. The win improved Romanov’s record to 13-0.
