👉At UFC 228 main event, defending champion @twooodley submitted challenger @darrentill2 with an excellent d’arce choke, defending his title and earning his BJJ black belt. Congrats champ! Escaping the D’arce choke can be challenging, but it’s definitely not impossible. The escape I demonstrate in the video can be a little counter-intuitive – many people feel uncomfortable turning belly down to the mat – but by quickly controlling your opponent’s near leg, you can both escape and takedown your opponent in one move. If your opponent is strong and tries to push you back into the D’arce position, you can utilize their momentum and sweep them over you, landing right into the pre-side control position where you can continue the sequence normally by pushing your opponent’s leg and turn chest-to-chest with your opponent.
