Discussion in 'OT Bar' started by Sammo, Feb 5, 2007.
This is pretty much the whole thing
I dont know how he didnt tap
especially after he tucked it under his arm.
yeah i saw that. I was like
holy crap that was tight
I have yet to figure out how he walked out of the cage.
some people cant be kneebarred. this guy at my gym told me his last instructor just let everybody try annd kneebar him. he didn't even defend, but nobody could even get him close to tapping.
I liked rogan's comments during that part of the fight:
OHHHHHHHHHHHHH I CAN'T WATCH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH THAT'S NASTY OHHHHHHHHHH
I don't consider myself a BJJ expert, but my knowledge of human anatomy and biomechanics tells me that basically anyone can be kneebarred. Maybe those people weren't able to use their body's effectively enough to execute it. A proper kneebar is that one joint against your entire body straightening out, and if you are capable enough, you can break their leg or dislocate their knee, no matter who they are.
Even if he knee can hyper extend(my girlfriends elbows do it. you have to really arch to arm bar her) you just have to keep going, eventually the knee stops going backwards and then it will pop.
i just watched the fight, holy shit that was an awesome fucking fight
Not to be a keyboard warrior or anything since I don't fight but the reason he didn't tap the guy before he put it under his armpit was because his body was almost entirely straight when applying the kneebar (this doesn't put pressure on the knee but just pulls out the leg) And after he curled up a little more and put it under his armpit, the other guy was able to get just enough of his leg out so that the pressure was not directly on the knee but just below it.
lol and again this is just my opinion of why I think the guy didn't tap, no flames please!
After the fight he said that once he saw there was 30 seconds left, that there was no way he was going to tap.
Hell yeah! Best fight of the night
the whole time I was watching that knee bar, I was just kept thinkin how incrtedible he was for not taping
best fight on the card. I was rooting for Tyson the whole time
yeah...thats how its supposed to go. thats what a submission is.
i'd have tapped long before it went under his arm
What did you expect me to say? I was trying to explain why is basically impossible in almost all circumtsances to be unvulnerable to a perfect kneebar.
im pretty sure thats what everybody would think. that's why i brought up my story; cause it was weird.
Because it didn't hurt.
Well, I guess you guys didn't apply it correctly then.
