Vinny Magalhaes' arm CANNOT be broken! Unbelievable!



If anyone knows how to apply an armbar it's Werdum... This is just crazy stupid, how he isn't injured from this I will never know!

I guess it's the fabric that's kind of slippery taking Werdum's grip on the twist and allowing vinnie to turn his arm against the lock.

That's pretty sick and I'm not about to go on a hate on Werdrum tangent here, the guy is one of the best grapplers in the world, but that armbar was a little sloppy.

He had his feet crossed and he wasn't using his legs to pull Magalhaes arm toward him and it looked like he was a little deep in on the arm, not to mention he didn't pinch his knees all that much.

The rash guard looked like it played into that a lot though, Werdum couldn't get his arm positioned properly so that his hips could flex to break it, which is why you should use your legs to pull the arm out some, you don't need to lift your hips nearly as far for the same pressure. Oh and it didn't look like Werdum ever actually tried to break it.

This is one of those situations where how you fight in a MMA fight versus a regular grappling match come into play. That being said some guys have really tough limbs or workout those specific areas.

Bolded part it's prabably right.
Werdum knew he was winning, so he probably opted for saving Vinny's arm.

If you watch Vinny's wrist he manages to keep his palm down (or mostly down) the whole time which helps a lot. He also keeps his body sideways rather than on his back so his shoulder off the floor so his shoulder is taking some of the pressure rather than his elbow. Still impressive but I can see why he didn't have to tap.

Yeah, it's all about redirecting things to another way and stuff.

True, but Werdum ended up losing...sooo.....I'd say break it. The guy can tap at any time, it's his choice not to.

Not claiming to be an expert, that is like a day one level armbar, anyone with just a little bit of time in can tell you how to execute that armbar, now finishing a world class grappler, that's a different story.

Exactly what I was saying about Werdum not controlling his body with his legs and allowing him to rotate his arm. Simmilar to GSP v Hardy, where it looked like it was in so deep and how could he escape, but in reality he was never in very serious danger of having his arm broken because of the angle he got his arm to. It hurt that's for damn sure, but it would have taken so much to actually break his arm that he was able to not tap.
