In my humble opinion this position from wrestling can be used to completely shut down someone’s half-guard game. I think UFC’s Jason Brilz stumbled into the Turk Ride by accident when he fought Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and managed to neutralise his Deep Half Guard game by pushing Nogueira’s head away from his arm that had under-hooked between Brilz’ legs.
We also saw Brock Lesnar riding on top in Frank Mir’s Half-Guard combined with the Stockade do some serious damage, and often see Wrestlers content to pound from on top in this position.
The above video shows how to flatten a guy underneath you and get a pin in wrestling, but equally in submission grappling when a Half-Guard player is trying to turn into you. I’ve spotted several submission possibilities including a neck crank and choke, a rib stretch and an inside reverse-toehold. For MMA with the arm wrapped around their neck like that you can get free shots on their head with your free hand.
