Everyone is talking about the missed subs by GSP so I am definitely going to catch this fight sometime. Grissim is dead on about the armbar. I hate guys that intentionally use their cup, a good BJJ player can escape if you play the slot machine and the technique I use is I grab my own shoulder in MMA and No Gi when falling back for the armbar. I get taps before I hit the ground as well.

The kimura is a submission of inches and angles (I guess all subs are to some degree). Hip out a little and it is a different feel. Bend the elbow a little more and it is different. But once it is in the right position I have never been able to muscle out of one. It always seems that we do kimura practice on days when I work my shoulders, not sure why that is .
