    That's got to be in the top 5 most impressive arm-bars I've ever seen.

    Seems like something that would be dreamed up in practice, joked around about at the BJJ gym, like fucking around to see if you could catch a white belt in it, and they'd be the butt of jokes at the gym for a month.

    But to see that pulled off in a real MMA match? Wow.

    I'm reminded of Anderson Silva being caught in that flying leg scissor over in Pride.

    Yep. Jiujitsu works. It's just that so many people now prefer fighters who are raided up and tattooed all over, throwing haymakers. Picasso vs street graffiti I suppose.
