It looks like Royce was setting up an omoplata, but realized "There is no way I am going to be move this guy" while trying to get it, so he switches to a cranking the arm with his hands. Like I guessed before, it looks like a combo omolata-armbar medley, attacking both the shoulder and eblow, with some awkward positioning and manual cranking.

Sherdog lists Royce's win over Akebono as "Submission (Wrist Lock)". What?
OK, after rewatching the submission and examing the photos, Royce does start cranking his wrist. It's hard to tell in the photo, and the ref jumps in the way in the video, but Royce does attack it.
Imagine that, defeating a 484 lbs. man with a wrist lock...

The following rather GLOWING description details Royce submission:
Akebono ended up on top, but did not have a favorable mount. As Akebono shifted his weight in an attempt to reassert himself, Gracie slowly began to squirm for position. He first got a leg up, then commenced to work his magic. Methodically, the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu master delved, deeply, into the blubbering mass atop him, finally extracting an arm. Then, with consummate skill, he worked a wrist lock. Poor Akebono began to wince in pain, and with no chance of escaping, had no choice but to submit.

Well, having watched the entire show last night, I gotta tell you, it sucked HARD and I hope the Pride show is better.
The night was marred by a recurring theme - people being completely clueless about grappling.
Abidi versus ologun. What the hell was this... A bug eyed freak versus a lazy ass french kickboxer. After a takedown that looked almost accidentally, both fighters played an enthralling game of 'who can grab and hold on for dear life the longest'. Minutes felt like hours as both fighters attempted to do as little as possible. In a brief moment of excitement, ologun punched abidi. It was riveting.
Opening Fight - The Predator defeated Kristof "The Phoenix" Midoux. - Didnt see this.
1. MMA Rules (with rope escapes) - Yoshihiro Akiyama defeated Frans Botha in the 1st round with an arm-lock. This was a good one. Yoshihiro looks to be quite the bad ass and is not only a champion judo player but a guy who likes to punch people's heads in. He won with a brilliantly executed armbar from the mount. This guy will be back to fight again, guaranteed.
3. MMA Rules: Yoshihiro Nakao defeated Don Frye by judges' decision. All mat work. This wasn't shown on the broadcast unfortunately.
4. K-1 rules: Ray Sefo defeated Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge in 24 seconds of the 1st round by TKO. This was pretty good but I think it's time for Gary Goodridge to retire for the 58th time. And not come back. Sweet knockout from Sefo, uppercut followed by hook, right on the chin each time.
5. Musashi defeated Sean O'Haire early in the 2nd round by TKO. This guy o'haire is what I would look like in K-1... terrible. After screaming myself hoarse at the TV for musashi to actually do something, I think he heard me and broke from tradition by actually throwing the odd punch and kick. He did this a few times and the other guy fell over.
6. K-1 Rules: Masato (Kobayashi) defeated Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto by judges' decision. Wicked fight, although the height difference saw Masato's leg kicks pounding Kid in the nuts more than once. The whole fight stopped for a few minutes after a particularly nasty round kick directly in the knackers. I don't like Kid that much, he is very cocky and has been a bad sportsman in most of his matches. It was nice to see him so totally outclassed as Masato picked him off with jabs and kicks. However, if they fight MMA, Masato will lose, of course.
7. Kazuyuki Fujita defeated Karam Ibrahim in the first round by KO from a big hook. Ibrahim was a little weird, and Fujita spanked him. Excellent. Yes, Ruas is in his corner and has been for a while?
8. Bob Sapp and Jerome Le Banner Yuk! Poor Bob Sapp, what is he still doing fighting? He has no fighting spirit... LeBanner punded on him almost at will with Sapp cowering like a .. big cowering thing.
9. Royce Gracie defeated Akebono in the first round by submission. It looked to me like an omoplata which didn't work, followed by Royce fiddling around with Akebono's wrist until Akebono said 'OUCH!'.
