The armbar was definitely working -- Royce just looked like he was 'relaxed' 'cause he was trying to play it off. Hughes was telling people afterwards, though, that he felt the arm pop multiple times.

Dammit. I was going to watch it on youtube again, but they removed it. Some silly thing about copyright infringement.
But from what I remember of the clip was that yeah, the armbar definately hurt, at one point, but it then looked like Gracie managed to alter it just enough to where it was no longer effective for Hughes.
I wish I could see that again.

I gotta say, when Matt put Royce up against the fence I was thinking, "That might not be the best idea." No worries, though.

Thanks Allen. Much better view that time.
That Gracie has one helluva pain threshold.
The elbow behind his ear had to hurt too.
