Let’s say you’re caught in a Triangle Choke and that it’s not your usual BJJ tournament… What’s the one way you might choose to escape this dreaded submission – without having to resort to escape techniques themselves?
Yup, that’s right. It’s by bodyslamming your way out. Which is exactly what Cody Brundage did in his recent UFC Austin fight against Zachary Reese.
The fight started off with Brundage quickly taking control – landing an early blow on Reese before transitioning to a ground and pound strategy.
Reese attempted a Triangle Choke, but Brundage countered by lifting him into the air… And executing a powerful slam.
This move proved decisive, as Reese’s head hit the canvas hard, leaving him incapacitated.
Brundage followed up with additional punches until the referee intervened, stopping the fight at 1:49 in the first round.

Brundage was happy with his victory, stating:
I keep falling short and this one I obviously didn’t.
I realized pretty fast [he was hurt]. This canvas must be a little harder than usual.
I’m just really happy.
This is Brundage’s second knockout since he has joined the UFC in 2021.
