By the looks of it, it doesn't look like Aoki was able to completely clear his leg from the over his opponent's arm. While not completely tap-inducing as stacking his knee on his ankle, in the unlikely event that the guy on the bottom squirms out Aoki can transition to a whole slew of other subs with his opponent's arm extended past his hip.
Yeah, the traditional transition out of a failed gogoplata is an omoplata, then into a triangle again.

From the top, the armbar settup is really easy if you can't totally clear the arm.
