It’s not every day that you see a successful application of the Von Flue Choke in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. And it’s even rarer that you see it applied in professional mixed martial arts matches.
However, that’s exactly what happened last Friday! In the main event at Combate Global, Yajaira “Pantera Negra” Cunningham managed to pull off a brutal Von Flue Choke against Iveth del Carmen – putting her to sleep with it.

Thirty seconds were remaining in the second round when the finish came. Cunningham managed to use the cage to pin del Carmen and prevent her from escaping to her side, successfully applying the Von Flue Choke as a result.
Cunningham is now at a 3-2 score as a professional, with this being her second submission win. Iveth del Carmen dropped to a score of 1-1.
