Popular UFC Fighter Talks About The WWE and Submission Holds

Josh Isenberg

CM PunkUFC Fighter Chael Sonnen sat down with WWE.com and Joey Styles to break down the most dangerous submission moves in the WWE. This is a very interesting article, and a piece that is worth reading. Ironically enough, Sonnen has been vocal about the possibility of joining WWE in the future.

Sonnen said this about WWE Champion CM Punk and his submission hold…

“Punk is a submission whiz who trains with former UFC fighter, Shonie Carter in Chicago. Punk even has a gym in his basement now,” Sonnen said. “He likes the Anaconda Vise. The Undertaker uses the gogoplata [known to WWE fans as Hell’s Gate]. The Figure-Four Leglock will crush a knee, but it is very intricate and difficult to set up. The standing Abdominal Stretch is applied on the ground in MMA and called a Twister. Again, it’s very difficult to set up, but brutal to be in. Alberto’s Cross Armbreaker is known as an armbar in MMA and it is a staple of every fighter’s repertoire.”
