The fact that Camoes was the one initiating the submission is an important point.

"It should be noted that when a fighter is placed into a submission hold by their opponent, if that fighter is capable of elevating their opponent, they may bring that opponent down in any fashion they desire because they are not in control of their opponent's body," Lembo wrote. "The fighter who is attempting the submission can either adjust their position or let go of the hold before being slammed to the canvas."

In other words, if you ride the bull, expect to get bucked. And if you do get bucked, you've only got yourself to blame for not letting go.

Seems very dangerous, but I like the stance they've taken with regards to the head-spike.

Good clarification, I thought it was illegal. But that definitely clears things up. And war BATMAN!

That makes sense about how they can let it go at anytime. I like the call on that one.
