Chris Fishgold is accustomed to leaving as the winner, with the rear-naked choke being a favorite of his. If the opportunity should arrive later today at Cage Warriors 52, he’s ready to use it.
“If [the rear-naked choke] comes, then I’ll take it,” said Fishgold on MMA Junkie Radio. “If not, I wouldn’t mind something fancy.”
In his undefeated seven fight career, Fishgold has six submission wins. Four have come by the rear-naked choke with the last three fights ending that way. In his first fight since October 2011, he takes on Steve O’Keefe.
Out of Cage Warriors, O’Keefe is 2-1 with a loss to UFC’s recent signee Conor McGregor.
