Its... hard to say. Not a regular armbar certainly, it does look like its attacking primarily the shoulder though. In this case I don't think I'll call it an omaplata simply because I'd have to be continually defending that assertion.
Great work Tycho!, you're creating a very sensible resource, but maybe you'll still end up having to watch every single fight... just to be SURE.
By the way, do you have rough figures for TKOs and KOs in relation to subs - vs the total wins?
I think in the old days they said it was a submission by forearm choke if the guy who won just put his forearm across the other guy's throat and put all his weight on it. I think Brian Johnston in the old UFC lost twice in this manner, to Ken Shamrock and Dan Bobish (Although on Sherdog, Bobish's victory is listed as a TKO).Quote:
If the results were abmigious (armlock), curious (forearm choke) or otherwise strange then I tried to find a closer look.
Yup. I originally thought this was just a way of meaning rear naked or a guillotine choke, but I watched a fight where the guy actually did tap to the leaning forearm. I was pretty surprised, I didn't think anyone would tap to something like that, but I guess I'm used to the newer stuff. I have a hard time listing this as a "real" submission though, as anyone competent on the ground would not be caught by something like this unless they were already half-dead.Quote:
