In MMA, submission wins are as common as KO wins.
If a fan learns to appreciate what he is watching, a good old fashioned submission win can be just as satisfying as watching some big dude get put on his ass multiple times.
Many fighters come into MMA with outstanding grappling resumés. Josh Koscheck was a four-time All-American wrestler. George Sotiropoulos, a UFC lightweight, entered MMA with a BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) Black Belt.
Fighters who are more skilled in grappling are generally more prone to end a fight on the canvas.
A fighter who specializes in BJJ is usually going to look for a submission opportunity to finish their opponent. But some fighters are better suited for submissions.
With that being said, I give you my top 10 MMA submission artists. Enjoy.
