Here's a video from BJ Penn. Looks pretty sneaky.
Do any of you guys use this?
I wish I was that good Bon.
you've been playing that upside down guard everytime we rolled...i think you can pull this one off broptimus prime.
Good thing that worked on GSP ...
ive used it.. but not on high level guys or anything. i can say upside down guard is probably the worst thing for your lower back. everyone and their mom just tries to smash ur legs into your face, and its a lot of strain on the back.
Coming from you...I will take your word for it.
This is now offically another chechen's back thread
take his advice with a grain of salt
a slight gust of wind hurts chechen's back

Didnt watch the clip, but is that the shit that you used against my to climb to my back?
it's the same position yeah. it's fine, but i dont hang out there anymore like some guys do.
Eh, I like to use it sometimes because my back/neck are flexible but not always. I like to regain butterfly from there or go for a kneebar/leck lock of any sort. I cant triangle for shit from there.
last time i played against inverted guard i accidentally grabbed a handful of balls
it wasnt an accident, and i loved it.
I learned something similiar at a Rigan Machado seminar, but couldn't pull it off in drills, much less in live rolling.
upside down guard reminds me of tom tucker's upside down face kid in family guy
I wonder if he laughs like that when he's fighting. Maybe he was against GSP that's why he did so well.
omg WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ???!!!!
go back to it.
hahhaa trailer park boys. I only thought this shit was popular in canada.
Id rather get better at the basics than learn that
why did he bother standing up?
all that 90% of big guys know in jiu jitsu is to lean forward, or stand up. seriously.
I was wondering if it crossed his mind, for a second, to try and slam him
there was a guy at the sub hunt this year that played upside down guard very, very well. He used it against Thompson and Wiuff and frustrated the shit out of both. He made it to the finals and lost to Wiuff. I never caught a name and didn't recognize him but he played almost ALL upside down and de la riva. You may be able to find out who he is and invite him in to show you some things.
does it work if your opponent's back is greasy?
