Mark Coleman is a genius. When he fought fellow combatants in the '90s, he decided to mix his wrestling with a "pound his face into the mat/oblivion" concept and it worked wonders; ground-and-pound was born.
Fast forward to modern MMA and every fighter has ground-and-pound significantly worked into their repertoire, albeit with varying styles and efficacy.
We are not even halfway through 2012 and we already have some sterling examples of this fine and brutal art. Whether from inside an opponent's guard or transitioning to mount, back-mount and elsewhere—these are the top five ground-and-pound for 2012 so far.
So, tell me, fellow Bleacher Reporters, who did I miss?
