AMW106 - Ariel X vs. The Spoiler III: The Tie-Breaker
BJJ black belt Ariel X (5'4 / 135 lbs.) and BJJ purple belt The Spoiler (6'0 / 230 lbs.) have a lengthy rivalry that not only includes their first two fights - both of which help set a very high bar for 100% competitive underground submission wrestling matches - but they've also faced off as opponents in a tag-team match here at Absolute as well.
So they're well-acquainted with one other. And the animosity between them is real.
The pre-match stare-down goes off the rails!
And the match itself is no different.
Both fighters are highly skilled and exceptionally strong, and a solid portion of the match features a fluid series of attacks, defences and masterful sweeps to reverse position.
But don't let that fool you into thinking this one is all super-technical BJJ - this an Absolute match where one fighter is wearing a gi, and that means both the gi and the belt are available to be used as weaponry by whoever controls them.
Gi chokes, belt chokes (a lot of them!), rear-naked chokes, triangle chokes, hand-over-mouth-smother, body-striking, arm-bars, and much, much more highlight this epic tie-breaking battle between two of the underground wrestling world's top fighters.
Ultimately, though, one of these competitors establishes control and, with no referee to force clean breaks after each submission, refuses to allow their opponent even the smallest opportunity to recover on the way to building a sizeable lead by the time the final bell sounds.
Based on how this matched unfolded, and ended (with the winner completely ignoring the bell at the end of the 5-minute punishment round to humiliate their opponent) it's inevitable these two are going to collide again at some point. And hopefully soon!
Does Ariel X claim the gruelling, exhausting, sweat-soaked victory? Or does The Spoiler walk away with the edge in this intense feud?
