    It is a tricky submission to finish with as it is easy to roll out of, i haven't seen it used to finish anyone in any big organisations in the past, i may be forgetting something though. It's probably because people go for armbars or triangles when in that position

    Yeah, I think Mir beat Williams by Omaplata but I could be wrong. Either way it was a sick-ass submission by Mir.

    it's rarely a finishing move. it's kinda like a kimura from the guard, most won't tap to it, but will be forced to give up the position.

    That wasn't an omoplata, but it was an awesome move, dunno what to call it though

    Riggs went for the omoplata vs lytle recently but lytle just rolled out of it

    Mir beat Williams with an unorthodox shoulder lock.

    Mir looked like he was gonna use a omaplata on tank then moves to a ankle lock type thing, the only one i can think of is royce and the sumo. sumo was to big to roll out of it.

    the reason its so easy to roll out, is because people use the submission as a means to improve position, you can easily roll your opponent and get side mount. In MMA, the position game is huge

    Omo Plata is used more as a sweep. It is not really a sub move in MMA.

    This is a wee bit random, but I'm pretty sure Buckler took out Cajnak in a recent Bushido event via the omoplata.

    Shamrock during the Frye fight

    As far as the omoplata goes tho...I mean it IS har to keep hooked in, but its EXTREMELY painful, thats why im wondering why noones (that i know of) tapped to it
