Joshua Pacio taps Pongsiri Mitsatit with a ridiculous reverse arm lock at ONE: Reign of Kings

Joshua Pacio labeled his sensational finish of Pongsiri Mitsatit as a “passion lock” in his post-fight interview, but beforehand there was a great debate between the ONE Championship commentators as to whether the correct term for the submission was a “reverse kimura” or a “reverse chicken wing.”

Whatever it was, Pacio elicited a huge roar from the Manila crowd when he brought a stop to the strawweight contest in the first round. He dominated the fight with his slick transitions and top control up until that point.

The finish bore a striking similarity to Phil Davis’s finish of Tim Boetsch, although “Mr. Wonderful” hadn’t taken the back of Boetsch when he forced the tap.
