    As you probably know there is no striking in bjj. Some folks wear a mouthguard against the possibility of a freak blow to the mouth while rolling

    That would be my luck. Inadvertent elbow or whatever. Wrastling is good fun though! When younger most all feuds amongst my mates was solved by a match of wrastling. No blows, submission for the win or truce for a draw.

Looked like a well practiced move as well as instinctual perhaps. Game over but for the dog's collar, apparently. Interesting how the dog was defenseless once it was grabbed by the throat, no amount of scratching or wrestling was going to have any effect. I was thinking that if it was a human grabbed like that, assuming their wind pipe etc was not immediately crushed, with thumbs and thought they could likely reach the cat's eyes and commence gouging.
    Meanwhile the cat would be eviscerating your guts out with it's hind feet, claws at full extension. Very unlikely to prevail in hand to hand combat against a mountain lion, us soft humans.

    Fully agree. But the cat in the vid appeared to be 100% committed to the throat lock, his claws weren't in play. So I thought a human might have a sliver of a chance to attack the eyes. Like they say to do with sharks

    My guess is body prep = stretching.
