    Its a side headlock choke when your opponent is on all fours or on their stomach.

    yep. you really want your hips in front of their shoulders for a bulldog to stop the opponent from rolling for a reversal.

    If a guy sinks it in really deeply, I think you'd be in a lot of trouble.

    If you do it from the top rope, there is no escape.

    As you can see in the pic above, Carlos Newton tapped out Pat Miletic with it.
     
  9. you need some short, stubby, ripped arms to do this hold well.

    sadly, that applies to a ton of subs. damn my 'just lanky enough to make subs loose, but too short to gain any real hight advantage' self.

    Ben Greer just beat John Lauro with that this night, was a sweet fight, John was on his side though, so you don't have to have the guy on all fours or on their stomach for it.

    I agree I think it depends on the situation, whenever I get someone with it Im usually on their side pressing down on them. I think if your position was like that old wrestling pic, if your opponent was strong they could possibly lift and slam you as a counter.

    Oh, on the short stubby ripped arms part, not the case at all, Ben Greer's a slim guy, he did it just fine.

    Isnt the defense where you grab the dude by the thighs, get your base under him and suplex backward, breaking his neck? I have a seen a nice streetfight clip of that :)
