It was hard for me to decide, but Iwent with Mir's toe hold, because you like never see toeholds.

The 3 that stood out for me are:

Mir over Williams
Parisyan and Hughes

but in the end I liked the shoulder lock. It let the world know that Mir had arrived.

Went with Hughes RNC over Trigg. That was a huge moment in hughes career and was locked in nicely.

once again the bigger names beats the better pick.

How is Hughes' RNC winning? Rear Naked Chokes are the most common sub in MMA!?!? He did something almost every wrestler pulls off in their career.

i would have to go with hughes standing rear naked choke on trigg
even to this day u still hardly ever see that
and may have been most significant finish by a submission from hughes in his mma history

A lot of great subs on there. When I think of beautiful set ups to amazing submissions, though- I gotta go with Frank Mir. I chose the toe hold over Tank Abbott just because the way it was executed was absolute perfection. I know Tank's not the greatest of opponents, but man.. that was some good looking BJJ.

The Mir lock is very, very, very close, too. I mean, the damn thing was named after Frank Mir pulling it off, and I'm not sure anyone else has ever done another one in MMA competition. It was just a bit of an obscure matchup, so I chose Mir vs. Abbott over it

Mir and Hughes also tie, both will advance to the next round.
