    Because of the skill level in wmma you just can’t vote for them. I can gogoplata my 7 year old niece regularly if I wanted, but it’s not as impressive as AJ using a submission in a tournament that has never been seen on the MMA stage before. Not to mention against a high level opponent

    Jimmy flick. The kid was on the wrong side of some one way traffic before he grabbed that submission. Showed a ton of grit.

    plus his opponent hid the fact that he had pink eye until after they both weighed in 2 weeks prior and got the fight canceled.

    Oliveira choking out FKL was glorious. Shame it wasn’t here

    Flick was real slick off the kick

    Khabib should be here. Made his supposed kryptonite look embarrassingly bad in the ground in a title fight.

    McKee gets the vote here but Fig's v JB is the real winner for me.

    That one gets all the extra bonus points for subbing a higher level of opponent, WEC and UFC veteran for over a decade who was never subbed in 30+ fights, he did it during a title fight, in front of the guys old lady and got the death face from JB to top it off.

    McKee easily, it's not even a proper contest

    Honorable mentions: Figs (in Benavidez II) and Khabib (Gaethje fight)
