Question for you Brazilian Jiu Jitsu guys. Was the Mir lock invented by Frank Mir, or was it called something else and then he made it famous or something?

It's been used before, but it's rare to see it used in competition. It would be called Maki Hiji or (Winding Elbow Lock).

no this move has been around for ages, way before mir. its practically obsolete now and rarely used because its so ineffective nowadays

I'm honestly not sure that any move we see these days is "new" no matter how much people try to make it sound like it. There's usually some variation amazingly similar to something that's already been done.

I've been put in a Mir lock before, though. If applied correctly they are kind of scary to be put in. It goes from feeling like "WTF is this dude doing?" to "OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!" haha

Its actually very effective for BJJ. You get a guys arm and to avoid a inverted armbar he will pull it out which and leave you with this lock.
Once you get it scissor you legs and the guy is ******.
