Top 10 Submission Series: Charles Oliveira vs Eric Wisely

Derek Bowe



* #2 Charles Oliveira’s Reverse Calf Slicer submission over Eric Wisely *

Over the course of ten weeks, this Top Ten Submission series will show full breakdowns of some of the most technically beautiful, and complicated submissions of all time. Broken down by extremely talented Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Noah Arnold Tillis, owner and head instructor at Tillis Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The #2 ranked submission on this list is my personal favorite, the reverse calf slicer by Charles Oliveira over Eric Wisely was an amazing submission, as those who do not grapple had no idea what had just happened when Oliveira finished the fight. Oliveira had gone for the leg lock, as he has a hold of Wisely at the ankle, as wisely turned, to try and face the pressure was released, though Oliveira had Wisely’s knee still tied up from behind in a triangle position. Oliveira then reached up and grabbed Wisely from behind at the waist and pulled him backward, applying the pressure on the knee, and ultimately finishing the reverse calf slicer submission.

Noah breaks down everything from leglock, to the attempt to turn and face by Wisely, then the finishing submission.

This submission occurred during the first round in their bout at UFC on FOX, on January 28, 2012

Ladies Fight Night 7: “Double Trouble” Preview



Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
