    I'm 6'1 with about a 74" wingspan. Front headlock chokes are a solid 1/3 of my game.

    In my experience, guillotine and D'arce chokes CAN present themselves in scrambles. Guillotine chokes are much easier to finish because of how simple the set up is. D'arce chokes are tricky. If you have it locked then you can finish it from top, bottom, guard, etc. Whatever you can get atm. The issue I have is finding the sweet spot with the lock. Some circumstances call for shallow D'arces. Others you just can't finish on bottom (depending on positioning and type of guard). Getting a good lock on the choke mid scramble or TD is hard. I usually have to adjust at least once. And every time you adjust you open chances to escape.

    With that said, I'm no Tony. That man is worlds ahead of me in the D'arce game.

    But yeah you make solid points. The thing I was disputing was the likelihood of setting up Peruvian necktie and anaconda chokes, which requires you to be on top in turtle with a full sprawl.

    Tony's BJJ is the game changer here. Khabib is obviously the best grapple in the UFC but he always get almost choked (even if it wasn't that effective ie Poirier)

    This reminds me of Cain Vs Fabricio, Fabricios ground game is insane and we knew he could sub Cain when given the slightest chance. Tony is no different, he is a submission artist, and that is the sole tool to beat Khabib

    Yeah Krons guard is as good as it gets. The main difference between him and Tony however is that Kron must worry about his opponent trying to stand up while Tony can just unleash hell from bottom with elbows and subs because his opponents doesn't want to let him back up on his feet.

    Eh, his stance has been the same for a long time. Even when he is baked he says the same stuff.

    I think I can have an opinion on anything without your permission.

    Wasn't asking for your help either.

    It's buttercups like you that think that their opinion is fucking ultimate that are the cancer of every discussion.

    You can disagree with me. That's all you can do, in reality.
