That arm bar wasn't tight enough so he HAD to transition to a choke. If you watch closely, you can see that Emerson's thumb is not pointing up so the arm wasn't comletelty locked. That's why Emerson was able to roll for the scramble. He got lucky. That armbar looked like he sunk it in deep until Emerson squirmed out of it.

Not the most impressive fight but Diaz was stlking him for both rounds. Emerson barely mounted a real offense. He was lucky in Round 1 that Diaz's stand up wasn't very good in the beginning. That's the only way he could have won round 1.

Fedor sleeps with a night light. Not because Fedor is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Fedor.
