The Unorthodox Ryan Hall

Ryan Hall did what no other person has done before in his match with BJ Penn at UFC 232 this past weekend. Ryan submitted BJ; forcing him to tap to a devastating heel hook. Ryan is one of the best grapplers on the planet with a unique style for unorthodoxy. This style was on clear display in the final moments of his match when he dove into a roll that entangled BJ’s leg with the end result being that heel hook.
