Ive been reading alot of posts lately that say Fedor is a way better submission artist than Mir and hed submit Brock by armbar no problem, is he a that great of submission artist? cause I dont think so. I feel its his overall game thats the best, but the best submission in the world at HW, I just dont know, what are your thoughts.
Oh, Fedor doesn't have the BEST submission game in the world, but he's damn good, I think.
I think it's hard to say anyone other than Big Nog has the best submission game, though.
As for Mir, maybe people have caught on that I just really don't see that much in Mir, but I can't think exactly why everyone thinks he's a great submission artist when the only person of note I can see that he's submitted was Tim Sylvia - who has no real ground game at all.
I guess he did submit that one BJJ black belt champion, but other than him and Lesnar - who has these tiny legs that my sister could pull on and he'd tap - is Mir all that great of an MMA submission artist?
Maybe he's a world class BJJ guy - that I don't really know - and that's why people consider him, but couldn't you say MMA BJJ is different than BJJ proper as well?
I think if your looking for a guy to sub Mir you need to look to a real elite level submission grappler, your looking at Ricardo Arona, Fabricio Werdum, Jeff Monson, your looking at some of the best submission guys in the world and people who are more advanced than your run of the mill BJJ black belt.
Just a note, and not a criticism, isn't it kind of funny how technical we get when start throwing around phrases like "run of the mill BJJ black belt"? I mean, you have to be really looking deep to start calling a BJJ black belt run of the mill, as if just anyone off the street can get one.
