UFC strawweight refused to tap out to rare submission in training, ended up in hospital
Only one fight in UFC history has ended via twister.
But that doesn't mean fighters aren't trying to perfect the submission in training.
The body and neck crank is most famous for Chan Sung Jung's finish of Leonard Garcia in 2011 which earned the Korean featherweight the "submission of the year" award.
And UFC strawweight Angela Magana found out just how effective the move is when training this week when, having refused to tap, she ended up in the hospital.

Dana White will be happy at least that the Instagram-mad fighter got the injury in actual training rather than in her extra-curricular activities which include twerking and beach gymnastics.
