You can fight there.' Since I am doing this (MMA) out of curiosity, (I thought) let's get a full experience out of my curiosity. I went there. It was a tournament. I'm like 'okay, let's get this.' So... I won my first fight (via) submission! I don't know... there's not a name for that (submission). I just dragged the guy's hand and I'm like 'okay, I'm breaking this hand or you tap."Francis Ngannou reflected upon the lack of understanding of grappling in those days and told Joe Rogan that he was virtually unaware of the moves he was making in the fight. Ngannou's submission win was the result of a popular Jiu-jitsu maneuver shoulder lock, as can be seen in the episode of The Joe Rogan Experience.All but one of Francis Ngannou's wins inside the UFC Octagon have come by way of submission.
