    I think there are/were pictures posted in a thread somewhere in the forums. Try a search if you haven't already. It is actually a fairly simple move...I think a lot of wrestlers use something similar which they term a gator roll. Don't quote me on that.

    Check Nog versus Herring.

    I can't pull it off right- I don't think I have the strength. Think of an arm triangle.

    Oh! That's probably why I never pulled it off. I never did the last part.

    You'll note that Nog has a clone that he trains with.

    I have gotten the position, but only managed to tap one white belt with it. It's trickier than it looks to get the arms in just the right position.
    Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?

    A great story about this choke from Sherdog's first of many, many "OMFG NOG INVENTED A CHOKE" and "HOW DO U DO THE NOG CHOKE???" threads:

    iirc, this led to some rules revision for freestyle wrestling competition (RuleOfSteel? You're the expert...)
    Sherdog has a bunch of threads on the subject, if you search the grappling forum for them. DO NOT start a new thread about this choke or you will be molested by a bunch of sweaty, lonely men.

    Considering it's basically just an inverted arm triangle I am sure it was invented shortly after the arm triangle was invented. Nog was just the first to apply it in MMA on such a large stage.
