Defending armbars happens to be a strong area of my game so its easy to talk about what may happen. But with that said, in the event that my arm was extended and locked out, I'm not likely to feel pain (my adrenaline blocks out pain during fights/high stress situations) and thus try to stack my opponent, looking for the counter. Like with Tim Sylvia, sometime the arm breaks before you even realize its that bad.
Too many guys out there quick tap out of fear (last night was not an example of that).
