UFC Audience Sees 2nd Ever Omoplata Victory

UFC Audience Sees 2nd Ever Omoplata Victory



Omoplata is quite a specific shoulder lock and one very rarely seen as a viable option in the octagon. You might remember how fascinated the audience was with Mackenzie Dern’s Omoplata/Choko combo back when it was first spotted in the LFA.

Still this is definitely not the last we’ve seen of the omoplatas in the cage. Just last night in Mackenzie Dern’s home state Arizona the event featured 2nd ever UFC omoplata finish.


First omoplata in UFC history belongs to the 10th Planet Ben Saunders



Here’s Dern in attendance with Sean O’Malley who paid Nick Diaz a specific homage:


And as for the rest of results notably Carlos Condit got subbed:


Another notable victory was Cara De Sapato subbing Tim Boetsch
