Wilson Gouveia’s armbar of Ryan Jensen is an excellent example of how to finish an armbar in the upper-levels of Mixed Martial Arts. He explodes into the armbar with impressive speed and while he doesn’t finished the armbar instantly, he accomplishes something very important, he breaks down Jensen’s posture.
At the start of the gif, when the fight clock reads 3:15, Gouveia shoots his legs up to isolate the arm and sinks a leg deep into Jensen’s armpit and hooks it over the shoulder blades. This is the most important detail to getting an armbar from the bottom, because without this leg the opponent will simply stand up, slide his arm out and pass the guard. Even as Jensen stands up he remains bent over because of that hook on his back is making him carry all of Gouveia’s weight.
This hook also allows Gouveia to keep his hips in tight to Jensen’s body, keeping the arm trapped and the elbow in peril. When Gouveia is ready he hooks the other leg heavy over the back of Jensen’s head and arches his hips forcing the tap.
