That's the first armbar escape they teach you at BJJ. The reason he could get out it because Lutter's right leg was under his left leg, gave Franklin plenty of room to escape.

 He made the escape look easy because his palm was facing down.  Just look at the big UFC logo on the glove.

why is a BJJ black belt not securing the body with his right leg? There was no resistance for Frankins roll out.

travis crossing his feet seemed to allow rich the body freedom to do that. it woulda been more difficult to pull that off with travis's right leg on the chest of rich. that said, they would both tap me like a tijuana whore, but i'm just saying what i see.

LOL @ people cirtiquing Lutter's technique. That armbar was a thing of beauty.

Rich is just practically impossible to submit in MMA.

 Yup....Nice work by Ace...Right when the round started I told my boy that I felt like Lutter was going to submit him with an armbar...

When Lutter put that on, I thought it was over.

Rich impressed me right there.

[quote]CRE - LOL there isn't a keyboard warrior or blackbelt who is going to apply that armbar better in a fight situation against Rich Franklin, just face it the guy isn't going to be tapped unless you put him to sleep, his limbs/joints are so flexible and he has the heart to risk losing the arm.[/quote] He wasn't risking losing anything. He was in an armbar without his body secured and his palm down. Not exactly the most dangerous place in the world. At first watch I thought it was an awesome escape by Franklin, but after watching that GIF it was a really shitty armbar.

there's no such thing as a guy that can't be tapped.

Because of the way Rich angled and faced him as soon as Lutter began the attempt the only way to make Rich flip was fall back at that angle to tweak the shoulder to force him to roll. He couldn't do that and have that leg across his body. Then to stop Rich from sitting up he had to block his face. While he did that Rich rolled and got the escape.

It was a beautiful armbar attempt imo. Even better escape.

I thought it was over for sure. Good to see Rich getting back to normal... now, if someone would only kill Anderson Silva... The belt will be his again in no time
