Arm drags are the #1 technique against big guys.

Arm drags are my favorite sdt ups for attacks.
Why is that even a question? The arm drag opens up the back.. 
I think you are talking about Alexandre Pequeno Nogueira
Well said & very insightful.
The truth is, no technique is exclusive to one single martial art anymore. I mean think about it, why would that be the case? Martial Arts have existed for thousands of years. Human beings have traveled all over the world and have traded and interacted with other human beings on different parts of the world. That is why you may see a "front kick" performed in Muay Thai that is also performed in Karate or you may see a head lock performed in Wrestling that you can aslo see in Russian Sambo.
Yeah, and also from butterfly, because it could set up a sweep, but its MOST effective for jumping to someones back.
it was his "instant" set of technique when he started his wins. most brazilians use this tactic to quickly raise to stardom. his move? armdarg - taking the back - mata leou. same goes to another brazillian fighter that uses guillotine in japanese mma matches several years ago(forgot the name and org. he was in). back then most brazilians want to cash in on the bjj hype. but now local talent is giving thm a run for their money!
