I think I addressed this if you re-read my post. Certainly he was more familiar with most of Royce's opponents but this is more about Swick than about the big guy.

If Swick trained FOR bigger people predominantly he would have taken a far different and more efficient strategic approach because that's what his experience is.

Specificity in training is what drives all our responses. "You fight like you train" in other words and Swick trains to fight people his own size, hence he fought the big man without much alteration from that mindset.

Swick regularly rolls with guys of all sizes. You took footage from a friendly roll and extrapolated that into Torrance BJJ propaganda. I thought that died when Laimon beat Ryron under "pure GJJ" rules

Haha - I don't think so GSMN.

It should be apparent that you react as you train and that fighting big people requires a different strategy than fighting people in your weight class.

Porkchop - the bicep crush. almost always works on big guys when you can't peel their arms apart. I got that from Dave Camarillo as Swick probly did too.
Explain please? I was wondering what the sub was - was waiting for him to go for the armbar and suddenly it was all over! Phone Post
When you're grabbing your own bicep in an attempt to stop your arm from extending, you're naturally curling your arms. Curling your arms means your bicep will be flexed, especially if you are resisting someone else pulling on the other end.

The bicep cutter is done by turning your arm that's hooking their arm flat so that your palm faces the floor, in turn lining the blade of your forearm against their bicep. As you pull back, your forearm will start cutting into their bicep/elbow. In order to increase the pressure, you can triangle your legs on top of their clasped arms, locking their arms in place and creating a lot of downward pressure on their bicep. People usually either tap to the bicep cutter or let their arm go, giving you the armbar.

And of course, the bigger your biceps are, the more muscle mass there is to crush, meaning that when this move is done on bulkier people, it's generally more effective. Phone Post
