    pancrase? i thought pancrase allowed open-hand slap boxing?




    BTW it didn't look lucky to me, it looked like a combination between the victor's good timing, and the losers poor reflexes.


    edit- after watching it again, definitely nothing to do with luck, thats a great armbar. congrats on the win.

    Didnt' look lucky to me, it was a nice transition from being taken down. I hate when people get a single and can't finish correctly so they just throw your leg in the air.

    Nice transition. Terrible defense by the other guy, though. Didn't anyone ever teach him how to stack?

    Can't finish correctly? That is a proper finish.

    Yeah, throwing a leg into the air is a proper way to get into scramble fighting for top position. Running the pipe, or a leg trip almost always leads to top position.

    So theres no scramble fighting when running the pipe or going for a leg trip? It's a proper technique and effective technique, see Richard Crunkilton vs Sergio Gomez (WEC 33). It is similar to the x-guard sweep with his leg over your shoulder and driving forward.

    If you hold on like Marcelo vs. Pelligrino at ADCC 2007, but then it's a totally different technique than just throwing the leg in the air like the guy in the vid. If he had held on to the leg he probably wouldn't have ended up in an armbar.

    It's not the same, its similar and he was still holding the leg while he came down. He came down so violently that the arm, that was lifting his opponents leg, was overextended which ultimately led to an armbar. He could have been triangled too, but this has been mentioned in Marcelo's X-Guard book. It's the other way around, if he had got his arm out after he finished the takedown he wouldn't have ended in in an armbar. Either way, a very effective finish from the single leg.
