Suman Mokhtarian is rapidly becoming one of the most feared submission fighters on the international scene.

The 25-year-old featherweight wowed the crowd at Hex Fight Series 10 in Perth, Australia on Saturday, forcing Sam Chan to tap out to a slick twister submission. Mokhtarian improved to 7-0 in his young career.

This is the second straight sensational submission for Mokhtarian. Just over a month ago, he finished Wajana Kiew-on with a nearly-incomprehensible maneuver that was best described as a “Teepee choke”.

If Mokhtarian keeps this up, he could be joining his brother Ashkan on the UFC roster soon enough.
