Kyle Boehm emerged out of a loaded lineup to win the 2019 BJJ Fanatics Submission Only Grand Prix. Here's how he did it. 

1st round: Kyle Boehm def. Valdir Araujo via inside heel hookwatch video 

It was a quick 1:25 win for Boehm, who submitted the former MMA fighter with a move that many others — including noted leg locker Aaron Johnson — couldn't.  

2nd round: Kyle Boehm def. Jordan Lutzky via outside heel hook watch video

Thirty-two seconds was all it took for Boehm to lock on an outside heel hook against the undersized and overmatched Lutsky. 

Quarterfinal: Kyle Boehm def. Jason Rau in OT (riding time)watch video

The level of opposition increased dramatically as Boehm moved into the semifinals. He faced off with the dangerous Jason Rau of Renzo Gracie, a Danaher-trained athlete that Craig Jones has called one of the best leg lockers out of the blue basement. Boehm showed excellent awareness of the leg game to avoid and defend every one of Rau's attacks, at one point hitting a slick diving kimura from top that saw him pass the guard and take the back. 

Semifinal: Kyle Boehm def. Aaron Tex Johnson in OT (RNC) watch video

Johnson was the first opponent of similar stature to Boehm, but the 10th Planet rep showed composure and smarts in avoiding Tex's fearsome leg attacks to win via choke in OT. 

Final: Kyle Boehm def. Lucas Barbosa in OT (riding time)watch video

The final with Hulk saw one of the longest OT periods in the entire event. Boehm was able to handle Hulk's top pressure and retain his guard throughout. His performances in the OT rounds were evidence of 10th Planet's emphasis on drilling both back escapes and securing the position. Hulk bucked and rolled but Boehm's long legs were the perfect control position from which to score the win.
