8. Ivan Salaverry’s Anaconda Body Lock
Unfortunately, we could only find evidence of Salaverry’s UFC 50 match against Tony Fryklund in a poorly-soundtracked highlight video, but skip to the 1:51 mark and watch as Salaverry takes Fryklund’s back and squeezes until “The Freak” taps out in agony.
7. Frank Mir‘s Kneebar
Frank Mir took a beating from Brock Lesnar during the ex-WWE star’s UFC debut at “Rapid Fire.” But Mir patiently waited for an opening and capitalized against a technique-deficient Lesnar.
Royce gave up like a million pounds in this one, but used flawless technique to submit Akebono — who was trying to smother him with his really large tits.

2. Rumina Sato’s Flying Armbar
Sato makes Charles Taylor look like a bitch in under ten seconds with one of the greatest acrobatic subs ever.
1. Ryo Chonan‘s Flying Scissor/Heel Hook
“The Chonan” was created from this move when a battered and desperate Ryo Chonan took down Anderson Silva with a Flying Scissor that morphed into an Inverted Heel Hook. Just sick.
