Oliver Enkamp made Bellator history on Friday with one of the slickest submission finishes the MMA world will see all year.
A former UFC welterweight fighting out of Sweden, Enkamp was caught in a back-and-forth contest with Mark Lemminger on the undercard of Bellator 281 before pulling off the first buggy choke even seen under the promotion’s umbrella. Lemminger charged inside and took Enkamp down off a spinning heel kick attempt, only for Enkamp to immediately lock the American up in the history-making choke just 25 seconds into the third round.

Enkamp (11-3) has now won four of his five bouts in Bellator since parting ways with the UFC. Lemminger (12-5) has been finished in back-to-back bouts in Bellator.
The buggy choke is a rarely seen technique that was developed in recent years by Austin Hardt, a member of Ralph Gracie’s California-based jiu-jitsu team.
