    His submission win against Hunt was his 45th submission in his pro career in 57 victories. Not to mention, he has pulled off some of the slickest submissions in the UFC with his last fight being the first ever eziquiel choke from guard.

    Where does he stand in the GOAT submission fighters convo? I think he has to be in the top 5. Thoughts?

    He's mostly beaten cans.

    Mir subbed way tougher guys for example.

    At HW, i would say
    • Mir
    • Big Nog
    • Werdum
    • Josh Barnett
    • Fedor
    Hunt is one of the easiest guys to submit and hes way past his prime now. Sean Mc fucking Corkle subbed him.

    Whos the best guy Oleynik subbed? a 70 year old Jeff Monson? come on bro who else? Chael P Sonnen?

    royce gracie looked like a submission GOAT when he was tapping out strip mall karate instructors

    Oliynyk looks like a wizard against guys who have no ground game like mark hunt but loses to chael sonnen

    he needs to submit a top ground guy before he's in the submission GOAT talk

    Lol Same here, but with tokes
    Also, I always enjoy your posts. That's a great avatar you got and while I'm sure you don't really look like Don Frye in real life, in my mind you do

    Hehe We all need dreams! I'm still working on a pair of circa 1969 Joe Cocker sideburns but the engine blood in me is really diluting the thickness

    Some people believe Oleynik would sub Roger Gracie in BJJ.

    He's up there, but I still think guys like Big Nog, Mir, and Werdum rank above him, given the bigger name guys they fought and subbed. They all 3 are the greatest submission fighters of all time at HW, IMHO.

    best submission HW has to be Mir and Werdum, imo they´re better than Nog
    Oleynik needs to submmit a big good grapler before calling him into the list of greatest subs artists

    That's fair,

    I didn't really put them in any order, although I do think Werdum is the best grappler, Mir just got the better subs.
