    So far there have been 198 fights over 17 cards. That means submissions finishes have accounted for 17.6% of all fights so far. As fans do you guys think this is too low or too high? Also which submissions did you like best this year??

    This is beautiful. Rear naked chokes are a bit too common to be interesting, but the rest of the variety of submissions is amazing!

    How many of the 198 fights have been female mma? Because all of those are desciosions and should not be counted with the real mma fights.

    17 percent is too low for my tastes.

    Would prefer subs and ko's to be about 49-49, with 1 percent herb Dean stoppages and 1 percent of fights stopped for ear biting, fan man flying into the ring, or a fighter's mother attacking the opponent with her shoe.

    Basic moves are always the most effective.

    You're much better off being a wrestler with some understanding of BJJ and great position control than being a BJJ practitioner who knows dozens of submissions you'll never get the chance to execute.

    I’m not sure man. I’d think we’d all love to see more submissions, but if they were TOO common, they’d lose a bit of magic.

    As they are now, it’s a bit like catching lightening in a bottle - which makes them a bit more special!

    Back in t'olden daaays, only a few people practiced submissions. So those guys would tap out fools. Now, everybody trains at least some ground game so the subbers have to work much harder to get them. Submissions might became even a little rarer but those who do pull them off are all tht more special.

    Yeah everyone is getting so good on the ground these days, the sport is evolving so fast.
    Just recently we can see some examples:
    Holly Holm has an evolving ground game, her grappling looked godlike against Megan Anderson (That could be against only Megan tho...).
    Robert Whittaker dealt with Yoel's wrestling pressure pretty well (Yoel could've tried using his wrestling a lot more IMO, but im still happy)
    Mirsad Bektic showed amazing grappling experience against a killer like Lamas (He was good before, looks even better now)

    seems low for my taste, but might be on par with last year's average

    oh wow, i'm surprised to see that the submission finish percentage for last year (17.5%) is so close to the current figure for this year.
    At least its been consistent so far

    Cool, so basically women BW have a higher finishing rate than male BWs. Eat that, Sherdog.

    31 women's fights so far in 2018 with 6 sub finishes so 19.3%, a higher rate than the men.
