Not sure if I should post this in here because it's not striking from a standing position , more a case of one guy standing while the opponent is grounded and is probably a bit of a noob question , but due to having little martial arts knowledge is why Im asking.. It's probably dependent on who the fighters are and what their strengths are I would guess , but as a generalisation , who in the scenario (in the gif posted below) has the advantage and is it much of an advantage.... I don't see many fights ended from here and often the standing guy will just back off and allow the opponent to get back to his feet.. This gif is from Pettis against Roller in midweek.. From what I've seen in fights , If the standing guy wants to work this position to his advantage he will often throw a few bombs , try to avoid getting caught with kicks and transition to a mounting position to dish out some ground and pound.. Is there a way to submit a guy when you are standing and have control of both his ankles.. I've never seen it done before from the limited number of fights that I've watched and often the guy on the deck seems little concerned about any danger , but still leaves me wondering if a fighter would be playing with fire if Palhares had him in this position.. Thanks for any replies..
