Oh, back mount. I don't like people in the backmount. That's not good.
I find that a good grappler can control you pretty well from the back mount, like when Diego Sanchez gets behind an opponent. It's hard to get rid of them, especially if it's non-gi grappling and you have no edi (rear collar) to grab.
The only suggestion I have for someone in a backmount, other than don't get into one, is keep the chin tucked and tight (the choke can still be applied, but not as easily) and buck. It wastes alot of energy, but it's a lot better than getting pounded, just ask Royce Gracie.
