Bellator 247 video: Monika Tochlikova scores rare scorpion crunch submission

Monika Tochlikova made Bellator history in her first pro MMA fight.

In the preliminary opener of Bellator 247 in Milan, Italy, on Thursday, Tochlikova found a unique submission in the second round of her atomweight fight with Jade Jorand. Battling from bottom position, Tochlokiva managed to secure her arms and legs around Jorand’s midsection (securing a “superguard” according to commentator John McCarthy) and then put the squeeze on her fellow pro debutante with a scorpion crunch to earn the tap.

Check out the rare submission hold for yourself.
