Paulo Filho vs. Ryo Chonan (Pride FC)

A quick and dirty fight for you guys today: Paulo Filho vs. Ryo Chonan, Pride FC-


Things to learn from this fight:

-Watch Filho as he attacks Chonan's open guard shell, and watch Chonan as he initially keeps Filho in his guard despite the diving attack.

-Filho demonstrates perfectly how to maintain your side mount on a fully resisting opponent.

-Chonan does a good job in trying to buck Filho off full mount... but Filho's armbar transition was just too perfect. Amazing move.

On a side note: I will repeat this again- be REALLY REALLY careful when pulling off heelhooks. I think I did some mild damage to a training buddy yesterday because he didn't tap.
