Just wow... Jéssica Andrade wins via standing arm triangle choke over Amanda Lemos in round 1 @ UFC Vegas 52 - Lemos vs. Andrade
"The one-time 115-pound champion pulled off the first ever standing arm-triangle choke in UFC history as she tapped out Amanda Lemos at just 3:13 in the first round to cap off the card from Las Vegas. It was a jaw dropping performance from Andrade as she latched onto the submission and just kept locking it tighter and tighter until Lemos was forced to submit."
"According to Andrade, it was actually a move she identified with her coaches earlier in the week and she pulled it off in spectacular fashion on Saturday night."
Nir Abelson ,12, won top spot at a judo event for children and teens with special needs earlier this month, marking a personal victory in a journey that began when he was only four years old.
Nir, who was diagnosed on the autistic spectrum, suffered at the hands of bullies who told him when he was little that they were learning judo and would consequently beat him up. His father, Yair, tells ISRAEL21c that Nir in turn decided that the best way to look out for himself was to learn judo as well, becoming a national and now international champion.
Nir won his international gold at the Special Needs Judo World Games in The Netherlands, which hosted some 400 athletes from 11 countries. He took to the mat in the 12-15 category, overcoming older contestants.
