Ben Askren: Omoplata escape to head scissors

While on the ground, Askren's opponents may almost catch him in a submission or a sweep. And instead of using the submission attempts or sweeps to get up, they continue to grapple with him. They do not realize that Ben will use his funky style, escape, get on top and will probably do something crazy and unexpected. Take a look at the gif below. His opponent catches him into an omoplata and Askren defends by jumping over to the other side, catches him in a headscissors lock (catch wrestling style) and then jumps to side control. This is a rarely seen technique.
