MMA Twitter lost its collective mind when Matt Schnell pulled off a big submission of Su Mudaerji in an incredible fight
In what certainly has to go down as one of the top rounds — let alone finishes and comebacks — of the year thus far, Matt Schnell scored a huge second-round submission of Su Mudaerji at UFC Long Island, getting the win when his back was to the proverbial wall.
Schnell seemed to have the upper hand in the opening round, bringing constant pressure to Mudaerji and having the grappling edge. Schnell, however, looked for constant submissions in the frame, including a triangle choke and an Omoplata.
Schnell was rocked badly early in the start of round two, however, getting nailed with a left hand. Schnell was dropped with another strike, and Mudaerji unleashed a series of elbows that seemed like would finish off Schnell.
Schnell, however, managed to somehow push through and rock Mudaerji with a combination. After some hard ground-and-pound, Schnell managed to lock Mudaerji in a triangle and force a submission and send Long Island into a frenzy.
