I would've thought DaMarques' over Guymon by Body Triangle would've been in there.

Tito v Bader was good for the simple fact that it was Tito getting a submission

That korean zombie "twister" was the worst submission I've ever seen. Its a stall technique becaus eits extreamly painful and looks dangerous and doesn't take alot of effort to pull off. You slap it on and ride out the clock.

Its a pain move, not a submission move. Its very unlikely anything is going to break in a twister.

I can't believe Garcia tapped to it with a second left...it just goes to show you that Garcia didn't have a clue what the move was. It hurt, he couldn't get out, so he thought he was in danger and tapped.

That move is called a guiloteen in wrestling and is a pinning combination. I've been thrown in that thing a couple of times and have had to fight it off/tough it out for 2+ minutes before. Heck in practice you get put in them all the time...

It looks cool I guess...but its not a submission move...Garcia is just freaking dumb.
