Seeing as the UFC has more important things to do than put on fights, I decided we need another topic to endless debate on. I liked OJR's and Shivan's threads, but I want mine to be semi-related to MMA. So here is my question, what is your personal favorite submission of all time? It can be main card or under card, spectacular or ordinary, or just your favorite fighter's latest submission. Mine is after the jump
My favorite submission of all time is CB Dollaway's guillotine of Joe Doerkson. An odd choice, yes, but its my thread so fuck you. The reason is that CB pulls off a perfect Marcelo Garcia style guillotine, which happens to be my favorite move to do. The other thing that I loved about this choke was how calm CB remained. As you can see in this gif, CB has an arm in guillotine in full guard but Doerkson is defending properly. As MMA fans, you know this is the part where the bottom guy squeezes really hard, doesn't get the choke, then gets punched in the face a lot because their arms are gassed
Instead of following this tried and failed method, CB stops squeezing and just holds onto the head waiting for an opportunity. About a minute later Doerkson attempts to pass, and that's when Dollaway makes his move.
No longer an arm in guillotine, CB has his whole neck and attempts to flip him to mount. After a couple attempts he does, and gets his second submission of the night bonus.
