Alexandru Lungu is listed at 360 lbs., nearly 100 over the upper limit of heavyweights as governed by the unified rules of MMA here in the U.S. There is not much of a chance that American fight fans will see him fight locally any time soon. In the meantime, we can only enjoy him through the magic of YouTube.
There is much to enjoy from Saturday's bout in Romania against Chris Mahle. Lungu's walk-in involves the pelt of a wolf-esque animal and a sword, he has excellent takedown defense and a good headlock, and he ended the fight with what was best described as a "boob choke."
It is officially listed as an arm triangle, but I didn't spot an arm in. It appeared to be all chest. Do you think we'll see a choke like that in Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem's bout at UFC 141?
