Aljamain Sterling breaks down his 'Funk-Strudel' slick finish at UFC 228

Aljamain Sterling picked up one of the slickest submissions we’ve seen in a long time this past Saturday at UFC 228.

Sterling (16-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) tapped out Cody Stamann (17-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in the second round with a knee bar from Stamann’s back. And now the “Funk Master” has given the finish a name: It’s the “Funk-Strudel.”

In the video above, Sterling breaks down just how a straight-up MMA fighter like him – not, he reminds us, a jiu-jitsu fighter – got the finish against Stamann.
