    Following Jake Shields recent submission loss to Palhares (no matter how controversial it may be), it got me wondering. Who are some other examples of great submission fighters whom got subbed in MMA?

    Doesn't get much better than Shields, at least in terms of MMA grappling. Roan Carneiro has some very good BJJ credentials but he's been subbed multiple times in MMA.

    Roan Carneiro is an Abu Dhabi Brazilian Trials Winner, Pan American Champion, and
    Rio de Janeiro State Champion and he has actually been submitted several times. Once by Jon Fitch, once by Kevin Burns, once by some guy named Tommy Depret, and technically Anderson Silva submitted him....but due to punches.

    Paul Sass, subbed by Matt Wiman is worth a mention.

    Newton was also subbed by Matt Lindland. ...Carlos fought that fight @185....way too bulky for him imo
