In the brief history of the UFC, there have been a handful of submissions so unique, so brilliant, so positively Raven that they became synonymous with the fighters who dared attempt them in the octagon. That a sport as old as jiu-jitsu is still capable of evolving and expanding its techniques is a credit to the dedication and inventiveness of the modern mixed martial artist, and a fact that has led to many a thrilling moment inside the cage.

Recently, UGer Tycho made the painstaking effort of cataloging and graphing every single submission ever executed in the octagon by frequency. Not wanting to let such a thorough and digestible work simply come and go, we decided to focus on the rarest of rarities, the aforementioned “signature” submissions, and rank them according to brutality, ingenuity, and of course, brutality. Enjoy.

So you might have heard that the UFC celebrated its 20th anniversary on Tuesday, and the organization’s head honchos could not have rang in the milestone more differently: Dana White took a dump on Tito Ortiz’s lawn, Joe Silva bought a new Ferrari, and Lorenzo Fertitta did push ups for 14 hours in a row. The UFC also uploaded two “Top 20″ countdowns to their Youtube page, taking a nostalgic look back at the most impressive knockouts and submissions ever seen inside the octagon.

As is always the case with list-style countdowns, the interwebs have exploded with controversy regarding both the UFC’s placement of certain subs/KO’s on the lists and, perhaps more importantly, their exclusion of several far more impressive entries entirely. Thankfully, we are here just two days late to quell the fires of your outrage.

Check out videos of the UFC’s Top 20 knockouts and submissions after the jump, followed by our scathing takedown of said lists – which we grant you total permission to pile in on.
