UFC 146: Frank Mir and the 10 Best Submissions of the Past Five Years
Scott Peterson/MMAWeekly.com

Following his come-from-behind, arm-breaking submission of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Frank Mir has replaced Alistair Overeem in a heavyweight title fight against UFC champion Junior dos Santos. Having brutally submitted the champion's friend and jiu-jitsu instructor, Mir will be looking to score a similar victory against Dos Santos.

Terrifyingly enough, Mir's win over Nogueira was not the first time he has broken an opponent's arm with a submission. In June 2004, Mir broke then-champion Tim Sylvia's arm to earn the UFC heavyweight title, which he would end up losing due to a career-threatening motorcycle accident.

One of the most dangerous grapplers in the heavyweight division, Mir has scored some of the most spectacular and historically significant submissions of the past five years. Let's take a look at where Mir's submissions stack up against the 10 best submissions since the death of Pride.
