In what many thought was a shoo in for submission of the night at UFC 165: Jones Vs Gustafsson, Brendan Schaub was able to choke heavyweight Matt Mitrione out cold with a first round submission. Schaub got the takedown at the end of the first round, and when Mitrion used his underhook to try and get up, thats when Schaub went into action and cinched up a D’arce choke that ended the fight. Rener Gracie was in the corner of Schaub, and the day after the bout the two did a special breakdown of the choke that got him in the win at UFC 165.
