I've seen someone in an arm bar for something like 30 seconds and not tap. It was a great move by Franklin, I never knew he still had that left in him

serra used that escape during his fight aganist karo a couple years back!!! i myself used it aganist a renzo black belt 3 years ago in an ametuer fight! its perfect- i do think if a more seasoned bjj guy (such as jacare/nog) had that arm bar, franklin would be wearing a cast

I think it just depends on the person, I don't think you would want to break anybody's arm and cost them there career.

If they don't tap, its not the guy who is doing the armbar fault but the other guy whos in the armbar for not tapping. Even these guys have their limits and no one should think that they can't get injured because that can hurt someones career big time. They don't intend to hurt them but they will win at any cost
