1:20 into the video.

I mean it's pretty clear, but for the downward elbows, he would have been taken down.

Wait, that didn't kill him? But... But teh deadly! TEH DEADDDDLLLLYYYYYYY!!!

Here's another example I like. It's made all the more better by the guy going for the takedown not being a good grappler in the slightest. Watch from the 9:00 mark:

I thought the video was hilarious...

The guy "defends" the takedown using downward elbows, then as he gets picked up, the referee separates them since he used downward elbows -- thus resulting in no takedown.

You fools. Don't you know that from the elbow strikes on key meridian points, the grappler will develop pancreatic cancer eventually after the fight? It's only a matter of time, 20-30 years tops until he dies from the wounds inflicted in that fight. Cancer always wins.

There's nothing wrong with stealing a joke from a movie nobody saw... otherwise it just goes to waste. In fact you two should be enjoying a bonding moment right now being in the same 0.0059% of people on the internet who saw that movie.

IF you guys ever saw fightquest, the giant kajukenbo guy trashed the MMA fighter with such an elbow. It looked pretty painful and effective.

Now please return to blowing BJJ.

Ah, so the secret to the downward elbow is being a giant.
