Submission Series 4/10: Mata Leao

On the fourth Submission Series t-shirt, we honor the most devastating submission of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the "Mata Leao" or Lion Killer, also known as the Rear Naked Choke. This technique has been used to win more Gracie challenge matches than all others combined. Although it had been used by the family for 65 years before the UFC was created, the Mata Leao became globally recognized. Royce used it to defeat Ken Shamrock in only 57 seconds in the semi-final match of UFC 1. Simply put, if you had to fight a lion, this technique would be your best bet.
