    Rank, please, these 3 escapes (actually 4):

    Jones vs Vitor, Khabib vs Dustin and Volk from Ortega (2 times)?

    Volk-Ortega.

    Vitor let go of Jones arm. Dustins attempt on Khabib wasn't as deep as Ortegas.

    Rich Franklin had a good armbar escape back in the day but i cant remember who it was against.

    Honorable mentions: Bendo's choke escape vs Cerrone in their first fight, Hughes RNC escape vs Trigg 2 and Pearsons badass armbar escape vs Dunham

    Edit: Actually, Bendo's escape might top Volks. That shit was in tight.

    Got his arm bent too

    But did his thing for most of the fight

    If you haven't watched Henderson/Cowboy 1, i seriously recommend you go watch it. Now.

    Volk's, coz of the fact that Brian is widely recognized as a very high level and one of the most dangerous submission artist in MMA. Vitor and Dustin are not.

    Jones Vitor was mad but still think Volk Ortega's the clear number one of those 3. Khabib escaping Poirier is trailing at a significant distance in third.

    Volk escaping the guillotine is the most impressive. The armbar Vitor had on Jones was very tight but as soon as Jones was able to just pick Vitor up, you could see he had a realistic chance of escaping. That wasn't the same with that guillotine, that shit looked like it was 100% a done deal.

    The guillotine Dustin had on Khabib was good but it wasn't that tight, I think people just weren't used to seeing Khabib in a moment of trouble ever so it came as a big surprise.

    I think it was Travis Lutter, where he spun on his head and snuck out. That was sweet. Had completely forgotten about it.

    Volk Ortega is the best I’ve seen in a while. Ortega made that fight what it was. His reluctance to quit where 99% of people would is why we tune in. To witness people show what mankind is capable of.

    Of those mentioned, Volk/Ortega.

    Alan Belcher habitually flirting with death on the mat with Palhares was also memorable for me.

    Nicco Montano escaping Roxanne's armbar in round 5 was incredible.

    Good post. Franklin was against Travis Lutter I believe. Lutter was a few tweaks on a few submissions and a good weightcut away from having a totally different resume. Did Silva escape a sub from him or was he just getting beat on?

    Cory Sandhagen had one against I think someone named Mario. In his first or second ufc fight. Nasty armbar
