    Maybe you just sold his crew some shirts?

    Severn has seemed to be one of the most unlikeable UFCers.

    I'd wager that you aren't collecting his cards, available now at $3.99 from his site...

    My experience with him first hand was that he was a very kind, humble guy.

    Some people around him however....

    Is Dan's MOM wearing a Tripp shirt? Funny. How'd you swing that?
    That's his manager, not his mom.

    It sucks, but ethically I won't be able to bring myself to call that The Severn anymore.

    everybody I know just calls it a short choke. Never heard it called the severn. His fights always bored me to tears. Ultimate Ultimate anyone?
    Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious

    IIRC his mom WAS his manager.

    No, that is not his Mom, it was his manager at the time.

    I submit that his fights for UFC 5, the only one we worked with him with, were very exciting; two wins by submission one by ref stoppage.

    I don't care what people call it; but it is called "a Severn" many places, including on the Ultimate fighter.

    Phyllis something? I remember she was the one who hooked him (and Frye) up with Becki Levy.

    Oops. Advanced forum. I'll stop.

    I heard them refer to that choke as the "Severn" on the TUF finale the other night and immediately thought no it's not it's the "Tripp" !

    Coach,

    I've been having success switching between the "traditional" RNC, and the "short" choke. A problem I've been having, however, is them pulling down the "choking" arm long enough to get their chin down. Due to massive squeezing power I clamp down and get the tap, but its dirty, unkind and painful to both parties involved.

    Do you have any tips, in regards to getting past the chin? Which do you prefer, the figure four grip, or the lebell grip version of the RNC?
