The American Gangster hasnt gone full Bob Sapp just yet. He did weather some heavy shots right out the gate looking for the takedown and ate a load more before he eventually got it. That roll over was a thing of madness though.

If you watch it back, he had no choice but to either try for the roll over or give up the position. He was too high up Fedor's back and was going to simply fall forward if he didn't try something.

He went for the roll over, which would have looked great had it come off, with him transitioning to a potential rear naked choke position, although there's a good chance that Fedor would simply have exploded and got back into guard.

Yeah I've listened to his comments post fight and he mentioned being too high on the back and that's why he rolled through.

It just looked so awkward and loose and seemed the ultimate desperation attempt that was never gonna pay off. 

 

Still the man though.

Yeah, he has a penchant for the ridiculous. 99% of guys in that position would change tactics and regroup, maybe even get back to their feet, but just like the elbow he goes for broke.
