    For each of these submissions, what do you consider the most iconic/legendary example?

    Armbar
    Americana
    Kimura

    Arm Triangle
    Anaconda
    D’Arce
    Peruvian Necktie

    Rear-naked Choke
    Guillotine
    Triangle
    Triangle-Armbar
    Omoplata
    Gogoplata

    Heel Hook
    Kneebar
    Achilles Lock
    Toe Hold

    Neck Crank
    Twister




    My picks:


    Armbar – Big Nog vs Cro Cop
    Americana – Jones vs Belfort
    Kimura – Sakuraba vs Renzo Gracie

    Arm Triangle – Lesnar vs Carwin
    Anaconda – Sobral vs Heath
    D’Arce – kinda new but going with Ferguson vs Barboza
    Peruvian Necktie – Dollaway vs Taylor ???

    Rear-naked Choke – BJ Penn vs Matt Hughes 1
    Guillotine - Big Nog vs Tim Sylvia
    Triangle – Royce Gracie vs Dan Severn
    Triangle-Armbar – Silva vs Sonnen 1
    Gogoplata – Nick Diaz vs Gomi

    Heel Hook – can’t think of a single example that stands out among the rest
    Kneebar – Mir vs Lesnar 1
    Achilles Lock – Arlovski vs Tim Sylvia 1
    Toe Hold – Mir vs Abbot

    Neck Crank – Coleman vs Satake ???
    Twister – Korean Zombie vs Garcia

    Chael getting triangled by Anderson at 117 was legendary, added to the fact that Chael is always getting triangled

    the Peruvian necktie that sticks out to me is Pat Curran over Luis Palomino, because Luis himself is Peruvian... too much irony

    I can't think of any armbar more iconic than this.

    A few others: Neck crank/RNC Maia vs. Story Kimura Mir vs. Big Nog Anaconda Couture vs. Van Arsdale

    Royce vs Delucia for armbar was what crossed my mind.

    Triangle would be Fedor vs Werdum maybe.

    Kneebar...I'm thinking Bas and Ken.

    Triangle armbar would have to be Anderson vs Chael.

    I think of Werdum armbarring Nog for armbar and then the triangle over Fedor.

    Werdum is a beast.
