Shayna Baszler seems like a blast to have around because when the party is dying down she can put people to sleep, literally.
Monsoor Al-Shehail recently sat down for a demonstration of Baszler’s skills and she was quite methodical about her process. She explained that every fighter goes through this before choking him out.
As you can see from the video below thanks to Cassidy Haynes from Bodyslam.net, it was quite real. Monsoor’s eyes rolled to the back of his head and he was out cold.
Thankfully, he came to after Baszler let up the choke hold, but there were a few seconds when the oxygen was simply not getting to his brain and it showed.
Don’t try this at home, kids because Shayna Baszler is a professional with years of training.
