Event: Pride 16 9/24/2001
Winning Move: Combination - Triangle Choke + Armbar
The Hammer was coming off six straight wins including the Pride 2000 championship. The dude looked unbeatable. Minotauro was 12-1-1 at the time. If this fight was a kung-fu movie, it would've been called Anaconda in Bull's Shadow.
Nogueira used Coleman's aggressiveness against him and sank in a triangle. When Coleman pulled back--which is always the wrong move--Nogueira doubled up with the armbar. It was either tap or get your arm put in a cast. Coleman tapped.
