Ireland’s Lee Hammond progresses in IMMAF World Championships with another submissions finish

Hammond needed just more than 90 seconds to earn his second win in this year’s tournament.

SBG’s Lee Hammond, whose spectacular submission finish on Monday at the IMMAF World Championships went viral online, has progressed to Day 3 of the amateur tournament, earning another submission win in the process.

Hammond’s initial win, an omolpata and head & arm choke combo, was a spectacular one and the Irishman followed that up on Tuesday with another another submission as he finished Sweden’s Mario Markus by rear-naked choke 1:38 into the first round.

He will now progress to Day 3 of the international tournament, in which he is representing Team Ireland in the lightweight division.
