Japanese legend Kazuyuki Miyata ended off his career in spectacular fashion, quitting Erson Yamamoto with a fancy hammerlock submission in the next round of his retirement bout at Rizin 14 in Tokyo, Japan on Monday.
Miyata captured the submission out of his spine and also reversed position as Yamamoto looked to evade the shoulder crank. After one final try to bridge Miyata off the arm Yamamoto succumbed into the submission.
Speaking following the win, Miyata announced his intentions to concentrate on his coaching career.
“My occupation is not any longer to become a winner; it is to build winners,” he explained, according to the broadcast.
