    You are correct. Honestly the triangle Brad did was poor. I have seen a lot of beginners pull off better triangles. He took forever to execute the move and did not move his hips to the side at all. The result was his calf putting more pressure on his opponent's shoulder and back than his neck. Certainly a poor triangle.

    Obviously Brad was a little tired, but I still don't think that can totally account for it. A lot of heavyweights Brad's size aren't known for having particularly awesome technique. Perhaps he is just big enough to be able to muscle the triangle choke even with terrible mechanics.
