Submission Fail: When an Inverted Triangle Goes Horribly Wrong

GIF courtesy

It’s round 1, I’m not too sweaty yet and find myself trying to lock up an inverted triangle. But as I try to switch to a scissors lock/armbar, my opponent starts to stand up. Looking back, that’s when I should’ve let go, but hindsight is 20/20 as they say. Now look at me, I’m a GIF on and the butt of all your jokes. Thanks a lot.
