British lightweight submission expert Paul Sass extended his undefeated record to 13-0 with a quick triangle armbar submission on Jacob “Christmas” Volkmann in a preliminary bout at UFC 146. Despite Volkmann racking up a five-fight UFC win streak coming into the fight, the British-born “Sassangle” made things look easy in The Octagon, submitting his opponent at 1:54 of the first round and winning the award for Submission of the Night. This is only Sass’s third fight in the UFC, yet none those fights have gone past the first round and this is already his second Submission of the Night.
Sass’s favorite submission by far is the triangle and uses it often, but his opponents just don’t learn. MTV Clutch’s UFC correspondent Andreas Hale asks him about this and more during their post-fight interview.
