    alot of really difficult submissions come to mind like the kz twister and osp's von fluke chokes
    but dj's armbar on borg looked pretty impossible to do again

    Still waiting for somebody to win via tickle. I’d probably tap super fast.

    You'll never see anybody pull off the Sub Royce got on Art Jimmerson again!!

    That submission GSP subbed to. That submission was stealthy cos all I saw was GSP getting punched repeatedly

    DJ’s armbar won’t be seen again because we are unlikely to see a mismatch of that calibre again. Considering the opponents, Mir’s unconscious rolling armbar on Nog and Rothwell’s gogo choke on Barnett were insanely difficult

    GSPs sub on Bisping. Considering it was up a weight class, on the #1 in the world at that weight and against a guy that had never been subbed before.

    Korean Zombie's twister submission on Poirier (I think) looked pretty complicated.

    IIRC Moraga's guillotine on Scoggins from half guard was pretty sick
