Yeah, I am picking my shots and all and Rogan keeps yelling "BIIIIIG SHOT TO THE HEAD!". I actually managed to rock my opponent on the ground now, but I think it has something to do with stamina. Maybe I just need to practice more because none of this is a problem on any difficulty but Expert.
Edit: Just found out you can let go of a submission by pressing L3. It's actually possible to sweep your opponent depending on the kind of submission you're giving up on.
