    When you think of grappler 'X' you think of move/submission 'Y'

    *Ryan Hall - Triangle Choke
    *Eddie Bravo - Rubber guard
    *Marcelo Garcia - Rear Naked Choke
    *Roger Gracie - backstop choke from mount
    and the way its looking
    *Cody Mckenzie - guillotine choke

    hell, I'll even take: Rickson Gracie - Armbar

    What more can you think of? And one time famous sbmission don't count, I'm not looking for Nick Diaz - Gogoplata.

    You put Marcelo for RNC, but I also think of him for X-Guard, most arm-drags.

    Mendes Bros-- 50/50

    Jacare-- Ankle Picks

    Braulio-- Inverted Guard/Triangle Choke (just like Hall)

    I'd also give Ryan Hall the reverse heel hook from 50/50 guard. He gets that all the freaking time.

    Nino "Elvis" Schembri - Omoplata

    Jeff "Snowman" Monson - North/South choke

    These are just techniques that immediately spring to mind when I think of the names, most of these guys obviously have quite the handful of signature moves:

    Mario Sperry - Clock choke
    Leo Vieira - Leg drag
    JJ Machado - Butterfly hook sweep
    Rafa Mendes - Back take from De La Riva guard
    Jeff Glover - Homer Simpson sweep
    Pablo Popovitch - Arm drag to inside trip
    Baret Yoshida - Crucifix to RNC
    Marcelo Garcia - North-South choke
    Roberto Roleta Magalhaes - Helicopter sweep
    Rubens Cobrinha Charles - Spider guard tomoe nage sweep
    Roberto Cyborg Abreu - Reverse triangle from back control (or same as Roleta)
    Roberto Tussa Alencar - Triangle against single leg

    Your criteria is nuts. One move per person isn't enough, and anyway what's the point, other than being able to spot a move someone does well? I'm not trying to be a debbie-downer but I don't get it.

    Also, even taking your criteria, why can't it be a famous submission?

    What other sub would Nick Diaz be "famous" for?
    So I couldn't say Ryo Chonan - Flying Scissor Reverse Heelhook? Simply because it's famous?

    If you wanted to make a list for fun, at least say like 3-5 techniques.

    Someone could say:

    Marcelo Garcia; crucifix, seat-belt, x-guard, one-legged-x/footlock guard, guillotine, RNC, north-south choke, spiral armbar, and any of the above moves would work.

    Ryan Hall; 50/50 reverse heelhook, triangle, mounted Darce, RNC, deep half guard, upside-down guard, Marcelo guillotine, and any of those would work.

    OR you could say pick a sub, sweep, and pass for each person. One move just isn't enough.

    You think of the guillotine when you hear Jeff Glover?

    If anything he's known for the deep half guard, Darce, back-takes, RNC, and the s-grip squeeze triangle. But I feel like this is even shortchanging someone or not looking deep enough at their game. I honestly believe these threads make you pigeonhole yourself into what you look at.

    No offense to you, I know you'e just playing the game. :icon_chee

    Exactly. Its a famous ONE TIME sub. I'm talkin like you can just smell the one move comming.

    Not a grappling example but: Cro Cop - LHK I'm talking that kind of synonimous.
