    Here's a video from BJ Penn. Looks pretty sneaky.

    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.

    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.

    I learned something similiar at a Rigan Machado seminar, but couldn't pull it off in drills, much less in live rolling.

    I wonder if he laughs like that when he's fighting. Maybe he was against GSP that's why he did so well.

    all that 90% of big guys know in jiu jitsu is to lean forward, or stand up. seriously. :rofl:

    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?
