There's no doubt mixed martial arts is beginning to capture the attention of more and more Americans. But we're thinking that most folks have a ways to go in terms of understanding the rules and terminology. Some of the submission moves, like rear naked choke, do sound a bit disturbing. You're not actually nude when slapping on this hold. A Georgia man didn't understand the concept when he stripped off his clothes in a Walmart parking lot looking for a scrap:

According to the incident report, Jeffrey Pickett said he wanted to be a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and was looking for someone to battle. MMA fighters utilize martial arts techniques from several disciplines during combat.

I don't care if this guy has one day of jiu-jitsu training, he wouldn't need to master the hold for me to immediately tap:

Pickett said he wanted to practice his tap outs, which is used by a fighter to signal he no longer wishes to continue fighting. The move is usually done once an opponent had been forced into submission

He was not charged with battery just indecent exposure.
