Toby Imada vs. Jorge Masvidal
Bellator 5, May 1, 2009 -- Dayton, Ohio
What can you say about this? It is the clip that helped put Bellator on the map. It was everywhere.
With over a million views just on the official Bellator YouTube channel -- not including how many saw it on TV, on another YouTube channel or somewhere else -- word got out about Bellator because of what Imada accomplished. This coming at a time when Bellator was on just their fifth show and people were still skeptical about the tournament format they were running.
Imada’s inverted triangle, even if it was in a forgettable organization, will go down in history as one of the best submissions in MMA history. Plus, to make things even more story-like, Jorge Masvidal was dominating the fight up until the finish. Imada, a total journeyman until that remarkable victory, told the tale with his face when his hand was being raised in victory.
