You catch a punch or grab their arm in the clinch, and twist their wrist (which I am guessing is considered a 'small joint', because I've NEVER seen someone use an Aikido move in the UFC) a certain way and you can submit them because otherwise you will just break their wrist, or arm, or fingers, or whatever you got a hold of. That's just my guess though, I don't see any other reason as to why small joint manipulation would be banned other than it's because it's so easy to break someone's bone like that.
