The knee on the belly is a versatile position that is not only the domain of big guys.
A smaller BJJ guy can use it to surf his opponent when it is difficult to get through said opponent’s frames to secure side control.
Check out the sweet triangle from the 180 degree arm bar (3rd technique). This is one of the triangles that even short legged BJJ guys can do!
