If he's pinning your hands down, you can't even roll to the side. But even then, I'd still need to buck to create the space to do that. And if I've bucked, I might as well shrimp and go for an elbow escape. If I risk my back and try to roll, its likely that even a moderately capable opponent would sink in some hooks and maintain control.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
