It pulls your arm in the opposite direction it's supposed to bend.

Imagine your arm bending in the opposite direction at the elbow until it broke....

He broke Tim Sylvia's arm with an armbar. He broke it in the center of the forearm though. Tim's elbow slid out and the pressure was then applied to the forearm, and it snapped.

Most times if you can properly apply an armbar it's going to pop at the elbow and bend backwards. It's more often than not an actual break, but rather the capsule in the elbow giving in to the pressure kind of like your shoulder being dislocated and coming out of the socket.

Well I was in a 'wrestling' match (who puts the other on both shoulders wins) with a friend of mine who does MMA, here they call it free fight.

Well, I won the wrestling part, he got pissed and continued cought me in an armbar.

It didnt hurt in the beginning so I tried to stand up, but once he got the right angle I was pretty much shocked (got scared that any longer I wait it can break my arm) that it did actualy hurt so I tapped.

I am sure I could hold a lil longer, but just the idea that my arm can break made me tap.

A friend of mine who was competing in a sambo tournament or something got caught in an arm bar. Dunno why, but he actually didn't feel it at first, so he didn't tap and it snapped. The next thing he hears is a huge crack and the guy who did it started to panic.
