    I'm not so sure this is intended to represent the inverted triangle choke. I've seen (and utilized) similar positioning as a means of countering a takedown attempt following a sprawl, with no intent to choke my opponent.

    The position is fairly regularly seen in Judo for effecting a turnover.

    You can also bait someone into a single by leaving the leg way out front then do a similar looking inverted triangle. Once. No one will ever fall for it twice. It's like a double armbar that way.
