i went with aoki. snapping that dudes arm like that was ruthless.
as for bad reffing in the tate/rousey fight, i disagree. at that level they need to leave it up to the fighters whether to tap or not, this aint some white belt BJJ tournament. tate should have tapped. if you watch the biggest BJJ tournaments in the world, the refs will let a competitor get his arm broke, because they need to know where their limit is. the reffing was fine in the rousey fight.
Same. Tate was being stubborn and paid the price.
I'm still baffled that, according to her, she "didn't really train armbar defense" because she didn't "expect to be there".
Honestly there's not really much "arm bar defense" to train.
Once you're caught in a submission, that's usually it. Unless the person applying it makes a mistake.
There's ways to escape but the better option is to train not getting arm-barred in the first place.
That means keeping your arms tight during escapes, keeping good posture in guard, or not letting the person get dominant positions to begin with.
