The Barrel Roll Escape (GIF)

Early on in his UFC middleweight championship bout against Anderson Silva, Chael Sonnen got caught attempting to land a roundhouse kick to the leg of his opponent.  Thankfully he was able to quickly counter with a barrel roll escape.

It is just too bad he couldn’t figure out the buttons to help him escape from a triangle choke with 2 minutes remaining in the final round of a fight he appeared to be in control of.  Looks like it is back to the instruction manual for Sonnen.
