There's a couple parts to it. Benson is damn strong and also has explosive power and speed along with surprising flexibility. If you're going to sub him, you need to lock it in hard & fast and rip the limb off the way Palhares or Frank Mir do it. If you give him time he's going to power out of it and pop free. Nate has good BJJ, no question about that, but it's just not the right style to work against Benson.
