15 Moments of Instant Regret [GIFs]

The Eight Sickest Submissions…EVER!

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.

6. Nick Diaz‘s Gogoplata

Nick Diaz and Takanori Gomi were in a fucking war at PRIDE 33. When it went to the ground in round two, Diaz unleashed his BJJ to wrap up a perfect G.

5. Ken Shamrock‘s Kneebar

This sub from a 1995 Pancrase match is truly classic. Shamrock works it perfectly and Bas Rutten‘s wailing is the cherry on top.

4. Tie: Royce Gracie‘s Triangle Choke; Royce Gracie’s Armbar

Dan Severn earned his first two wins at UFC 4, but also ate his first loss when Royce Gracie made like the “spider” in the Alien flicks.


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.

3. Takumi Yano’s Eat-My-Nuts Head Scissors Choke

While it looks like Takumi Yano and Hideki Kadowaki are trying to recreate the staircase scene from A History of Violence, Yano is actually just biding his time for this tea-bagging choke hold.

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.

"2. That Shamrock/Bas kneebar was a work, no matter how many times Bas denies it."

Yeah it does look that way.

i'd say that Mir breaking Sylvia's arm wasnt a submission as much as it was a referee stoppage... Sylvia is a douche but he didnt tap.
Turdburglar- February 21, 2008 at 8:09 pm
what about Genk-move-Sudo vs Butter Bean.
CG- February 21, 2008 at 8:00 pm
How about Mir breaking Sylvia's arm?
godzillad- February 21, 2008 at 7:21 pm
1. You guys left out Fran Mir's shoulder wrench on Petey Williams
2. That Shamrock/Bas kneebar was a work, no matter how many times Bas denies it.
3. You forgot Chris Lytle's inverted Triangle/Armbar on Jason Guilliam.

Great rating but I like Satos armbar the best.
