40-year-old UFC heavyweight Alexey Oleynik (53-11-1 MMA) picked up the eleventh Ezekiel choke submission victory of his career at tonight’s UFC 224 event submitting his opponent Junior Albini in the very first-round.
“The Boa Constrictor” is the only man to ever record an Ezekiel choke submission win in UFC history and he has now done it twice.
The first time Oleynik pulled off the slick finish was over Viktor Pesta at UFC Fight Night 103 which took place January 15, 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Here is how the mixed martial arts community reacted to Oleynik’s sensational submission win over Junior Albini at tonight’s UFC 224 event in Brazil.
Are you kidding me??! Oleksiy Oliynyk with ANOTHER ezekiel choke. Take a bow. #UFC224

Second Ezekiel choke finish off of his back for Oleskiy Oliynik.
A record that I can confidently say will never be broken.

Once it’s locked there’s nothing you can do about it.
