Ever wonder what submissions are the most commonly used in the UFC? So did I, so I counted em and here are my results in a pretty graph format. Let me know what you think, and ask any questions you want.



Official stuff:
[*] This study counts submissions as we normally think of them. Tapping to strikes, injury, fatigue or frustration are not submissions. "Technical submissions" as stopped by refs are counted. Submissions are, where possible, counted even if the official result was later overturned to NC, though I can't be sure I caught all of these.

[*] Submissions are listed on the pie graph if they comprise at least 10% of subs from that time period. Otherwise they are listed in "Other".

[*] I chose the names. I usually, but not always use names from BJJ. If you have questions about naming, please ask.

[*] I counted all these manually by looking through records. I counted and added and graphed them using excel. When I had video footage available, which was often, I would view the submission especially if it seemed weird somehow. I usually try to fit a submission into an existing category, unless it seems significantly different. An armbar from guard and an armbar from mount are the same. I didn't originally want to list "Triangle Armbar" as a submission but it turns out they are fairly common, and might be under counted. Because I do not take from the records verbatim, this is an interpretative study, and hence almost certainly contains errors. So don't take this as 100% accurate. But it also means I have complete records, so if you have a question about an individual event or fight I can answer it/check it/correct it.





Every fight and every sub in the UFC's history:



1993-1999

"Choke" and "Armlock" are what the official records show. Were possible I watched the fight to define it more precisely eg "Choke" becomes RNC upon viewing. These early records are spotty and not very reliable.
*
2000-2005

These fights all took place under the modern, unified rules. I lumped them together because there are so few compared to future events.

Well the urls are there. I'm currently scrambling to figure out how to format things for this forum.

But RNC wins.

Well I guess I can't post images unless I pay some money? Can I at least turn the urls into links? I figured this board used BBCode, but apparently not.
