    I am not in North America and North American events are very late for me. I have now learnt that unless I am up at that hour and mirror the bootleg videos very quickly, they are taken down by Capitalists and become hard to find. So I have to use the official UFC tweets.

    From the double prelim card this time we have two intriguing submissions:

    Rani Yahya, a Brazilian black belt under Athaide Junior, currently fighting with ATT, catches Luke Sanders with a first round heel hook, taking his career figures to 26-9 with 20 subs.



    AND

    Joanne Calderwood traps Kalindra Faria with a classic armbar / triangle transition in the dying seconds of the first round also.



    Great to see both martial artists stay cool, commit to the sub and methodically adjust the details until the leverage was there to get the finish. Submission > position.

    Well...

    Yahya's heel hook was objectively interesting, but for none of the reasons you mentioned. He finished with outside ashi, which is a relatively unusual finishing position in MMA for the heel hook, and shows off just how high level his heel hook game is.

    Calderwood was getting grief from the commentators about too being complacent off of her back, and making no effort to return to her feet. But, she hit a really basic wrist punch triangle, and the armbar transition was very good. It's honestly shocking she wasn't able to finish the triangle, as it was extremely tight.

    Of course, the craziest grappling move of the night was Alcantara's triangle/armbar attempt off of the quarter nelson/whizzer, which was very similar to Dustin Hazelett vs Josh Burkman.

    Once again jumping into 1LX proves to be the superior single leg finish. Behead those who insult meme-fu!

    Hi, as I am Yellow Carded at the moment I can't make a separate thread. When it expires I shall do so.

    Here are our interesting submissions from UFC 228 (ongoing).

    Alajamain Sterling takes out Cody Stamann with a modified kneebar from the back in the prelims. Sterling is a brown belt under Matt Sera and a former D3 wrestler. This win takes his record to 7 subs out of 16 wins. I'll leave this one to the grappling masters on the forum to break down - suffice it to say this is a sequence and sub you don't see every day.


    Craig White's grappling coaches will be working with him on when to bail on a guillotine / headlock attempt after tonight I'm sure:



    Jim Miller hurts his man on the feet, softens him up with ground and pound then instead of just pounding away from a Turk or leg ride as we so often see, takes a more intellectual approach and wraps the neck with no hooks then finishes the RNC with bottom hook only:

    Lightning strikes twice!



    Zavut Nagomedshapirov, a high-level freestyle wrestler, takes his record to 17-1 with 8 subs. He's very tall for the weight class, 6 inches taller than his opponent, do you think that is a factor for this?

    AJ knee bar from backmount was far more intricate

    Still Yellow Carded so I shall continue to load up this thread:

    Fight Night 136:



    Former D1 wrestler Jordan Johnson improves to 10-0 (5 subs) with a satisfying side choke (arm triangle) from top half.

    In the comain event Blachowicz (Joe Moreira black belt) gets the side arm triangle. Surprised we don't see these more often.

    Independent links for posterity, and I've included the main event this time. A fairly straightfoward RNC perhaps and Hunt did make a mistake in taking both hands away from his neck to try to explode up, still impressive though imo. Hunt is probably the strongest fighter on the roster after Lesnar, stocky and thick, over 265lbs and the last time he was submitted was 2010, 16 fights ago (Shaun McCorkle) during his terrible run there of 6 losses back to back when he wasn't training and all that.

    So often so you fighters take the back and then there's just a stalemate of handfighting until the end of the round, several minutes sometimes. I liked how Aleksei was aggressive about finishing, switching grips, cranking the jaw and it paid off. This one takes him to 57-11-1 with 45 subs. In the UFC he's 6-2 (5 subs).

    Boa Constrictor


    Blachowicz vs. Krylov


    Yandiev vs. Johnson

    UFC Fight Night 137: Santos vs Anders
    22/9/18
    Sao Paulo, Brazil

    4 subs on this card, which was pretty nice. You often get a lot of subs on the Brazilian cards.


    1st fight of the night Livia Renata Souza (black belt) guillotines Alex Chambers (purple belt) with a highly dominant mounted guillotine in 81 seconds, taking her to 12-1 with 8 submission.



    Mayra Bueno Silva stays composed on her back against an opponent pressuring her (Gillian Robertson) and rolls for a classic armbar with 5 seconds remaining in round 1 - really torqued that arm too. She is now 5-0 with 4 subs.



    A very tight arm triangle from Sergio Moraes (3rd degree BB under Everdan Oligario) on Ben Saunders bumps him up to 14-3-1 (8 subs)



    And finally Charles Oliveira is now 24-8 with 16 subs and the record for the most subs in UFC history (12) with this slick RNC from back body triangle on Christos Giagos. He earnt POTN with this also.

    @Ghost in the Dark thanks for posting these

    Cool to see Oliveira get that record. I could've sworn that Nate Diaz was neck and neck with him as well.
