I like the traingle too just cause you also have the option for a quick arm bar if you have problems with it.

Drop in leg locks. Ya know, when your about to get choked out, but instead you hyperextend their knee, yeah them.

this is a cheesy answer, but i like when a fighter gets caught in a sub that they're known for using. if i remember, hughes caught trigg in a rear naked choke twice, then criticized him for not being able to defend it, then he got caught by bj

Leg locks get iffy when the submitee is too flexible (like Frank Edgar, well he just plain toughed it out too)

Triangle Chokes are an excellent fight ender, unless you're fighting an overwhelmingly powerful fighter (Hughes / Newton, Rampage / Arona)

I'm old school, I like a solid guilottine (sp), gator roll, N/S, Anaconda, arm triangle... A lot of front chokes, because they are most plausible in a real fighting situation, IMO...

With that being said, Aoki's gogoplata was sick...

I just like doing arm triangles. I don't know why. But I like seeing good armbars and triangle chokes becaus once you see a guy locked in, you just think to yourself, "Oh he's fu****."

I like the armbar.. mostly because I can do it on all of my buddies.
Tjis thread would be so much cooler if it were a poll.

Same here once i see that leg go under his knee to lock it in for the triangle choke its pretty much a done deal unless their opponent is super strong

For myself fighting, I like the hawaiian choke, because a lot of guys don't know what it is and/or don't see it coming. Its also great because you can get it from many different positions, including standing.

For watching fights, I love the dueling leglocks senario, because you never know whos going to get a leglock first.

Well, once it is on the Hawaiian choke is pretty awesome, but it is hard as hell to apply. I have seen it as a counter to a guillotine escape. It is a popular Kyuoshu move.

My favorite submission to apply is a scarf/armbar combination.

Triangle choke still one of the best.

Its tricky sometimes, but a lot of people don't see it coming, and you can actually work a european uppercut into it if you practice.

If you have a BOB standing punching bag you can actually work the movement on it while doing clinch work. The nubs for arms get in the way just enough to make it slightly difficult.

I like learning exotic subs like that because they seem to panic a lot of the BJJ guys I've rolled with, which is good, because I usually need all the help I can get.

Gogoplata. Im suprised no one has said it. Its so ahrd to get but once you do noone is getting out. My friend challenged me to a Free Fight (anything goes) at the combat room at school. I stuck him in one of those so fast he didnt get time to tell me to "**** off". Of course i only managed to do it cuz he had no ground skills whatsoever.

Anything with the word "flying" before it works for me

i have a "triangle" of favorites i guess you could say..
i love the triangle choke (#1), which can also set you up for an armbar (#2), and i also love the arm triangle (#3)..

and in close fourth, is the gogoplata.. fascinating submission

and my favorite submission that nobody ever uses (i think ive only seen it twice in all the bouts ive seen EVER), is the double armbar.. ive seen dean lister pull it off in KOTC, and ive seen alexander otsuka pull it off in PRIDE.. nobody else

The best submission I ever saw was Faliniko Vitale went for an armbar from the mount, transitioned to a triangle from the bottom, and then applied an armbar from the bottom and got the tapout.

The standing guillotine. Just like Overeem did it to Vovchachyn. Almost becomes more of a neck crank when you really get it.
Don't sleep on the toehold.
