Keenan Cornelius's Inverted Spinning Armbar Explained...

In the No Gi super fight at the 2013 BJJ Expo between Keenan Cornelius and Lucas Leite there was an absolutely spectacular submission. Keenan hit an inverted spinning armbar from half guard that impressed the hell out of everyone who saw it.

There’s a ton of great detail in the video, so check it out below:
