In this video you will learn how to do one of the Elbow Extension / Arm Bar set ups that Ronda Rousey used on Miesha Tate in their bantam weight title battle at Strikeforce. This was the first of two arm bars that Ronda Rousey went for in the fight, she almost won it with this one but Miesha Tate managed to escape despite her arm being badly hyper extended. This Arm Bar set up started when Miesha Tate was doing up kicks towards Ronda Rousey before Ronda span past the legs and took a knee on belly position and cleverly held on to the leg while going for the arm submission. It’s a great set up that can be used in MMA or BJJ but it does leave some defensive opportunities for the opponent because of the knee on stomach start position.
