I voted Twister, simply because I'd never seen it done before - plus it was awesome.

I voted for Twister and the 144 KO on Mendes. That was absolutely masterful, there was no possible way for Mendes to defend it as Aldo controlled his arm and lead him into the knee.

How does voting work? It only lets you choose one option so can we only pick one sub or one ko? Also the voting options have the same words so it's confusing lol

Ahh gotcha, that took me embarrassingly long to work out haha, kept thinking neither of those subs happened at WEC 41!

Anyway, voted for the double knee and twister, both just because I'd never seen either of them before, especially the twister.. had no idea what was happening it looked like Garcia was getting broken in half or something lol

For Aldo definitely the double flying knee KO. It's funny this is up because I just saw a rerun of the Aldo/Mendes fight last night. The knee against Mendes was special because it seemingly came out of nowhere, and it finished him with 1 second left in the round. But the double knee KO wins by a mile in my book. I mean they walked out, and that was it. Aldo timed it perfect, connected with both knees and that was it. It was the first strikes thrown in the entire fight. I remember jumping out of my chair when I saw that.

As for KZ. I will admit I am a bit bitter about him beating Poirier, but I still think the twister was more impressive. It is just something you never see whereas a darce isn't as common as other subs, it certainly wasn't the first time I had seen it.

Urijah Faber - Dustin Poirier - Frankie Edgar - Demian Maia - Miesha Tate - Claudia Gadelha - Jessica Eye - Tecia Torres

I picked the Twister because while he may not be that good, Leonard Garcia is a tough as nails fighter. The fact that he subbed to it meant that the application was perfect, something that is very difficult to attempt, let alone complete, in MMA.

I voted twister purely due to my loyalty to 10th planet, however that was the easiest twister I've ever seen, Garcia had no clue what it was and gave it right to him. I preferred the dance personally.
