    What happened to submissions...

    Noticed recently that we see less and less submissions in MMA. GSP and Penn I don't think even attemped one....

    I was about to start this same thread! Then I thought about it a lot and I am wondering if it isn't just the UFC; largely due to design via matchmaking.

    lolwut? Did you guys see a couple UFCs ago when almost every fight ended in submission? ´The Night of Omoplatas´? There is still plenty of submissions in the UFC. The koren spent half of the Karo fight trying to RNC him.

    I saw Machida get out of a leg lock attempt. I saw BJ actively work his guard but was never in any position to get one off.

    You get cards where everybody gets KO'd you get cards where everybody gets subbed. You get cards where there's a hefty load of decisions. Must be the planets aligning.

    don't you guys listen to rogan?

    these guys are getting elusive and they get sweaty and slippery so subs are hard to pull off.

    To be fair to Rogan, a good sweaty, slippery guy can be elusive. Especially at 3am. Especially when most pros in Vegas are girls.

    One UFC and submissions are dead.
    There have been recent UFC's with half the fights ending in sub. Others with no KO's.

    Demian Maia, Jason MacDonald, BJ Penn @ 155, Eric Schaefer and Dustin Hazelett would disagree about submissions being a thing of the distant past.
