Cheeseburger Josh refers to a fight video starring Joshua "Ace" Moll where he was wrestled to the ground by Joe Guichebarou after harassing wait staff at a Whataburger restaurant in Austin Texas.

The submission hold that Joe G. used to submit his opponent was an armlock called a keylock.
A keylock (also known as a bent armlock, figure-four armlock or ude-garami) involves holding the forearm and using it to twist the upper arm laterally or medially, similarly to turning a key in a keyhole.
