As a cornerman it is my job to not only tell my fighter to apply the needed pressure but to also put the fear of god into my fighters oponent. Hearing "BREAK IT!" from his oppenents corner when caught in a arm bar may be that ingrediant needed for him respect the sub and to tap to a good sub before he does actualy get his arm broken.

Guy I train with had a fight 6-7 months ago. Got the guy in a deep knee bar. Had it dead. The guy wouldn't tap. Held it for a momnet and then cranked it till the guy yelped and started tapping furiously. What was Dan supposed to do, not crank and let go of the sub?
Lutter is another example, if he'd popped quicker he might have actually finished Franklin (or at least gone into the second facing a one armed franklin).

I'm of the opinion that if you break someone's limb in a fight, by cranking the **** as hard as you can from the get go, just to secure a win, his friends should be waiting for you outside the arena with guns and knives and ****.Originally Posted by Goju - joe

If you refuse to tap then you get what you get.

Reminds me of that fight where GSP was going for the kimura on Kosh and he couldnt get it becuase Josh was grabing his shorts. So GSP started JERKING that fucking arm. I thought "My god, if GSP gets this Kosh isnt going to get a chance to tap, GSP is just going to CRANK that fucker off"
fortunetly for Josh GSP never got it.

The thing is, with armbars for example, the slightest hesitation when going full out can allow an escape.
