Definition of a good year in subs...a flying motherf***in' triangle only gets 7% of the votes.

Still thought Mir should have pulled it out at the end. Still a pretty slick sub from the Zombie

It was the coolest twister since Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton ran around while listening Van Halen

Submitting Leonard Garcia must be cooler than Submitting A Nogueria.

I chose Mir to win but it's all good. Watching Jung pull off that twister was pretty damn awesome.

A big part of this for me included name recognition. I though Brandao's rolling sub was amazing, but the flying triangle is clearly the most impressive. I think a lot of people put more weight on the twister never having been used before

...right on about the twister, that's probably the main reason why I voted for it...the novelty of it.

Personally, I voted for the twister but if you're going by pure technique it's Diego Brandao's armbar without question.
