UFC legend Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua used an ‘oil check’ against Brit Paul Craig in their rematch.
The pair fought on the UFC 255 undercard, a year after they drew.
Scotland’s light-heavyweight Craig got the victory via second round stoppage.
But he was given a shock after crafty veteran Shogun oil checked him – the act of putting his fingers inside his opponent’s anus.
The move – which is legal – has a range of purposes, one is to shock and make the victim uncomfortable.
Or it can be used to gain leverage, putting the opponent in a more advantageous position.
Fans were left shocked following the move, but Craig seemed unfazed and even cracked a joke after his win.
He said: “Normally someone would have to take me for a meal before they done that.
“It was exhilarating, it gave me a wee spring in my step.”
Despite Craig’s impressive finish win, Shogun’s vintage tactics emerged the talking point of the fight.
