Oleksiy Oliynyk scores the first ezekiel choke in UFC history, submitting Viktor Pesta at UFN 103

Oleksiy Oliynyk is now the first man to pull off an ezekiel choke in the UFC.

The 39-year-old heavyweight submitted Viktor Pesta with a first-round ezekiel choke in the preliminary card of Sunday's UFC Fight Night 103 in Phoenix, Ariz. What's most impressive, is that Oliynyk pulled off the choke while being mounted by Pesta.

With this victory, Oliynyk is now 51-10-1 as a professional fighter, and now impressively holds 41 submission win under his record.
