I'm not saying crank it harder to blow out the knee, but maintain pressure until you know it's over.
The prank was so basic, I can't believe Miller fell for it.
I agree with everything you said. I mean, in jits you're conditioned to let go of your buddies arm the moment he taps so you don't destroy your training partner, but a professional fighter should know better when he's inside the cage.
And no matter how basic the prank, getting your car towed is certainly better than filling a room with tires.
