UFC Newark Highlights: Gerald Meerschaert Chokes Trevin Giles Unconscious

Gerald Meerschaert

Gerald Meerschaert just pulled off a great submission victory over Trevin Giles at UFC Newark.

The pair met in a lightweight matchup on the main card, which was a grappling match, for the most part, that was dragged into the third round. However, Meerschaert was able to establish dominant position on the canvas, and lock in a deep guillotine choke. Referee Herb Dean was unable to see the tap from Giles.

As a result, he was choked unconscious, and the fight was then called off. Check out the spectacular finish here:
