tldw: Oleinik is a gorilla.
He certainly is
Did anyone else think it was hilarious when Rogan called it a Russian arm bar?
well in judo circles I think that certain variations of rolling armlocks are called Russian by some folks, maybe that's what he was getting at?
When I think of the Russian I think of it as the arm drag counter. I know Fedor hit that arm bar a few times. Coleman 2x, Hong Man Choi, and he had a very similar finish against Matt Lindland
I’ve heard it referred to as a russian armbar several times both in judo and bjj. Though in my judo circles it was much more common to use the Iatskevich or Adams roll to get into the regular armbar.
