    sharpest submission game. fergusons submission attempts are very sharp and mostly successful.
    he has a better submission game than kevin lee and khabib. khabib`s ground game depends more on gnp while ferguson doesnt have a gnp game at all but a sharp submission game.

    I was thinking Penn, but he's only got 6 career subs and almost all by the same rear naked choke.

    Diaz got 8 UFC subs, 11 career, and by multiple methods (RNC, Guillotine, Triangle, Armbar, Americana). He seems like he's got a better all round submission game.

    Has to be Nate, might not be the best grappler, but he has the most sub wins and some against top competition like Jim Miller

    Joe louzon has 8 sub wins (not saying he's the best or one of)

    yeah I knew he had jumped divisions so that could skew the numbers a bit if we are just considering LW submissions
