UFC 137 Gracie Breakdown (Penn/Diaz, Nelson/CroCop)

The important lesson here is, when in 1/2 back mount, always keep the over/under to control the shoulder. 
Here's the always informative Gracie Breakdown for UFC 137 - Rener and Ralek Gracie show the crucifix side control used by Big Country Nelson on Crocop & possible counters to such a dominant position, then explain what exactly happened it that ridiculous scramble by BJ Penn and Nick Diaz, as well as what happened in that 1/2 back control Penn had and the options he missed, and how Nick escaped out of it.
