Your badass of the week is MMA fighter Kevin Croom who somehow managed to not only survive this arm bar attempt by Jacob Akin but also completely turn things around and take the victory. Akin has the submission hold locked in but Croom reverses it into a powerbomb, knocking Akin silly:
There was some talk about the spike/powerbomb being illegal under the Unified Rules of MMA but in this case, it was ruled that Akin could have let go of the hold if he wanted and avoided being spiked. I guess he wishes he had.
