Rener Gracie reveals how Arman Tsarukyan survived Charles Oliveira’s guillotine at UFC 300, cites loose fight kit

Rener Gracie reveals loose fight kit helped Arman Tsarukyan avoid guillotine by Charles Oliviera at UFC 300

Rener Gracie, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt gave a video breakdown of how Arman Tsarukyan did not tap to either of Charles Oliveira’s submission attempts at UFC 300.

In the first round, Oliveira had a guillotine attempt in tight but Tsarukyan was able to somehow escape. Then, at the end of the third round, Charles Oliveira had Arman Tsarukyan in another choke attempt, but the bell rang as Tsarukyan had good defense to not tap.


Following UFC 300, Gracie took to social media to break down how Tsarukyan didn’t tap to either attempt.

It was interesting from Gracie to hear how Tsarukyan was able to defend the attempts, as he says the loose shorts of Tsarukyan helped him get out of the guillotine.

“Number one is you can go full body triangle. If you body triangle, and you extend the hips, you’re not gonna slide past their hip bones, and you don’t have to worry about loose shorts or tight shorts. You’re good to go.”

By not tapping, Tsarukyan edged out a split decision win over Charles Oliveira to become the No. 1 title contender at lightweight.
