In Manchester, England Jonno Mears moved to 2-0 as a professional fighter when he made Aaron Jones tap out to a Boston Crab, also known as "The Walls of Jericho." The event was Full Contact Contender 19, and it happened just 90 seconds into the first round.
Video has emerged of the highlight maneuver, featuring the victorious Mears sticking his tongue out while applying the submission.
The move isn't completely unheard of in the grappling and MMA world. There are multiple ways to pull it off. One of the simplest is typically against lower level grapplers who hang onto guard way too long. If they do so and close the guard, sometimes they'll go flat back, giving the opportunity you need. If you're able to bear crawl towards one of the legs -- but over them -- you can hold onto that leg and keep a half crab. This, however was a full-on Boston Crab, which is even more tough to do with that kind of leverage.
