Welcome to the latest installment of Missed Fists as we highlight fights from around the globe that can go unnoticed during a busy period when there seems to be an MMA show every other day.
Last week, we featured some amazing commits that seem to have been made out of thin air, but the truth is these are things that only happen often In the dark corners of the combat sports world. This thread continues this week because, as you know, one of our favorite things about low-level MMA is low-level submission defense.
Although in the first instance, this defense turns out to be correct.
(As always thanks to @Barrelelapierna for the weekly list of best KOs and submissions, and @Grabaka_Hitman for uploading many of the clips you see here. If you can Follow them and chip on Patreon.)
