    First I can think of is Maia vs Sonnen. True that Sonnen probably wouldn't be able to defend a triangle choke from a white belt, but it was some beautiful shit from Maia.

    I was trying to think of other notable examples, but really can't. Do you guys have any?

    Hazelett's sick armbar on Burkman. I guess that's more of a counter than a takedown though.

    Chonan doing this to Silva is still one of the prettiest things I've ever seen in mma.

    Not a traditional takedown, but Struve locks up Lavar Johnson's arms on the feet, jumps guard, then goes belly down and breaks the arm. One of my favorites.

    Matt Riddle had a standing arm triangle which he then use for the takedown and submission vs Chris Clements. Cannot find a gif.

    Especially good if by "best", we're counting time from takedown to securing the finish.

    If we're talking armbars, nothing beats Rumina Sato's fastest submission in MMA history, which was clocked at 6 seconds.
