Gracie Breakdown Of Khabib Vs. Poirier Dissects The Guillotine Choke

In the aftermath of the brawl between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, a side effect has been the international explosion of Khabib’s popularity. Drawing just north of one million Instagram followers before his fight with Conor, he is currently sitting at 16 million and counting. Needless to say there is great interest in recognizing any vulnerability in the armor of the Eagle anytime he fights.

In yesterday’s fight, Dustin Poirier had Khabib fans nervous as he jumped for an arm-in guillotine. Rener Gracie alongside one of his top black belts Mike Saffaie, discuss exactly why Poirier had Khabib in legitimate danger, as well as the counter Khabib employed that was not taken advantage of by Poirier. The outcome was strikingly concluded in the exact round and manner of finish that Saffaie had gone on record predicting a day before.

After the match, Khabib once again jumped out of the cage, only after Dana White this time instead of Dillon Danis. While the hearty embrace Khabib gave Dana appeared to be benign, Rener humorously examines the possibility that there were ulterior motives behind this as well.

Rener is known not only for his Gracie Breakdowns but also as the head coach of UFC star Brian Ortega, Saffaie being Ortega’s long time strength and conditioning coach. All three men are highly adept at the front headlock series, many of the concepts explained from the video are discussed in greater detail during Rener’s “Guillotine Mastery” brand of seminars.

Be sure to catch him next time he’s in your city to ask him about the guillotine details in person!
