Many people will tell you that the KO is the most exciting aspect of any combat sport, but I think a devestating submission is equally impressive...

Whadayathink??? I've got to go with Chonan / A.Silva never seen anything like it...

Please feel free to tell me all the good ones that I missed too... I love to see a great submission, it ilustrates the versitility and the beauty of the MMA fight game.

Note: I would've liked to add Nick Diazes kimura sub of Neer, just because he tooled him for 2 rounds before he finished it with a decisive victory... WAR NICK DIAZ

Aoki against hansen was amazing and really surprising for me that he controlled hansen like that, it has to be the best submission ive seen in pride or ufc

ya, that gogoplata was sick... You see guys try sinking them in all the time, really difficult sub to finish... That was a close second in my book.

I loved Sakuraba's kneebar against Newton but my vote goes to Chonan.

Chonan's flying heel hook on Silva was nice; I also really liked Ed Herman's transition to an armbar on the past UFN not the best submission but one that sticks out in my mind in recent memory.

i think the scissor-kick that chonan pulled is what sealed the deal for me

No flying armbar from Sato for the poll options? Tut tut.

Like I said, I was looking for more examples of great submisions... I guess there's only so much you can do with a six option poll, and I have to admit that I haven't seen everything...

Now if I could only get my hands on that huge MMA database that you mentioned in the 'Spoilers' forum...

How about Nogurira's anaconda choke against Yokoi at Total Elimination 2004. Then he finished Herring with the same move at Critical Countdown 2004 two months later.

The armbar of Fedor to Coleman. Simple and effective. But i choose Hugues in the poll. Great counter.
