UFC bantamweight contender Urijah Faber stopped by the set of CNN's "The Starting Point" to talk about his new book, "The Laws of the Ring", and ended up tapping out to host Soledad O'Brien. The lessons starts at 1:20 with Faber admitting there are MMA moves that could kill, including a rear naked choke.

Faber is a busy man these days. Michael Chiesa, his fighter the latest season of "The Ultimate Fighter," won the show on Friday night, earning both Chiesa and Faber a Harley-Davidson. He is preparing for a chance at the bantamweight interim belt at UFC 148 and publicizing a book.

If you skipped straight to choke, it's worth your time to go back and watch the first part of the interview. Faber handles the questions well and lets O'Brien choke him out, being careful to mention the honor in tapping out.
