He may not choose to drop prone and break the grapple for free. He may try and drop prone, which involves a contest similar to that of a takedown. If he does succeed in dropping prone and his foe does not drop with him, the grapple will break unless his foe has unusual anatomy.

And there won't be such thing as a one-sided grapple anymore, much like Ken Clary's old article, all grapples are mutual (though the penalties inflicted are not).
