That's awesome to hear, and certainly may be the case during training, but I'm not the only one who has observed him in his MMA bouts and noticed that his control techniques are lacking, at times.
Belcher, for example, slid right through those attempts.
Nevertheless, cool to hear that you have trained with him.

Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

Late to this party, but figured I would post this. An episode of Luke Thomas' Technique Talk with Reilly Bodycomb as guest. Talking leg locks in MMA, Palhares, etc. I would highly suggest listening to the podcast. The transcript is only partial.
Also, here are my first 2 episodes of SamboTech which address leg locks in MMA
