Where is Zabit's rear-naked kneebar?
I had Oleinik until 232. In my opinion Hall deserves it i thought that we will never see a successful roll to heel hook in UFC.
Oliynik vs baby Albini. Albini knew it was coming he said, but damn Oliynik's grip is insane, he reminds me of those 1970 Russian HW boxers who were not ripped or nothing but they could crush coconuts with their bare hands
Gotta be Ryan Hall
Because BJ Penn
Great thread @Valhoven. appreciate the effort you put in.
Wieczorek omoplata not even nominated?
Voted for Oleinik
I feel like people will be voting for Hall due to recency bias
Every time I think I'm not just an average Sherbro, I vote for exactly the same nominee as everyone else. In this one, i was torn between Hall and Oley, and I went with Hall. Pleasantly surprised to see they are #1 and #2
Also shocked Do Bronx is not on the list
Voting for write-in candidate: Javy subbing Mir via strikes.
Ezekial choke since it's so difficult to pull off.
To see Penn submitted is something which couldn't be described with words.
Isn’t that video of Oleynik’s ezekiel against Pesta, not Junior Albini? I know Oleynik has two ezekiels in the UFC so far, which is ridiculous.
I’m still trying to decide between that and Hall’s beautiful sub on Penn.
Edit. Checked the video again, it is definitely Viktor Pesta.
I really liked that hammer lock from the back. That was very cool and looked insanely painful. I think Vinny Magalhaes deserves a mention with that triangle kimura combo he got. I've never seen that before. Any kind of shoulder sub really makes me cringe
Fixed. Cheers for the catch, Spath. I made a few of the GIFs myself and originally planned on using only a still of the choke on Albini as it looked just as crushing; bungled the job however with a last-minute YT link instead. Which of the Ezekiel and Hook did you end up running with?
Nice. Really slipped under my radar, this one. I looked at April but as a preliminary bout, I must have overlooked it. Thanks.
Voted Oleinik last year, and while he's known for it it's more of a trademark now, not as special as the earlier ones.
IMO, the most difficult and visually impressive sub happened on last card with Chiesa switching from 2 arms to shoulder and 1 arm to sub Condit, who, albeit past his prime, is still great off his back.
Craig submission was a real WFT moment this year: a submission against an opponent who was mauling him for 14 minutes and 56 seconds non-stop count both for comeback and submission of the year, in my book.
I could see it, especially with the nick element factoring in. This in a nutshell is how the kimura got its name but I'm glad we have still armbars and not Rondas.
That kneebar was a fucking incredible moment IMO, gave it some love. That wasn't just a fight he was losing, he was beaten pillar to post all over the cage and looked outmatched. Was amazing to see him pull that off.
Zabit's Banana Split was as sick as I've ever seen but given the choices, Ezekial choke against a guy that has you in full mount? Insanity.
Ezekiel by Boa Constrictor
Gotta be Hall. I know Penn's washed up but still, becoming the first to tap him in such slick, brutal fashion was impressive. Nasty submission.
Separate names with a comma.
