Pro wrestling and MMA continue to blur. As the UFC grows as the sport's entertainment monopoly, The Undertaker goes out there and does a modified gogoplata, and you have MMA fighters doing half-Boston crabs. Alex Sandoval just opened UFC Nashville in style with a slam turned DDT, but redeemed himself with some powerful hammerfists.

While the slam looks cool, it's not the ideal escape for a guillotine choke. As you can see above, you could easily knock yourself out by spiking your head into the canvas. However, it was Sandoval who ended up doing the spiking when he got out of Matt Schnell's grip and drilled him with hammerfist to the dome. Sorry Artem Lobov — and MC Hammer — Sandoval already cued up hammer time.
