Second video this week was Guy Mercier vs Allen Le Foudre (Charles Verhulst/Johnny Londos). It was a weird round systems match but had a lot of great individual moments.

Verhulst really liked doing this:

These Mercier armdrags are wild too:

One of the most defining things of 50s French Catch so far has been extended holds and the utilization of multiple moves to break them. Here, Verhulst holds on to a chinlock despite another one of those deep armdrags.

Another example of a hold being hung on to, this time a cravate through a really high bodyslam attempt:

Mercier had some throws, let me tell you:

It's not all front facelock deadlift floatover suplexes though. I like the way Verhulst uses his head to steady the anklelock, and then Mercier's counter.

Even with the Kevin Dunn cut, this is just brutal:

I think we have a lot of Mercier matches left.

The ultimate defensive move against an agile competitor: fall over.
