Best Armbar

Which fighter do you think had the best armbar in MMA?

I think it was Sak. His armbar was so swift and could come out of nowhere.

For a runner up it would be Rumina Sato, the only guy to successfully tap a guy with a flying armbar in MMA.

Definitely Saku. He can turn an armbar out of any situation. Just check out Randleman vs Saku for reference.

Saku for LHW/middleweight and Nog for HW. I say Nog because of his arm bar on crocop was sweet and you never know what sub he'll try on you. I don't see the need to repeat why saku is my pick - it's all been said already.

Sak, Sudo, Yoshida, Nog, Ribeiro or Sato

fedor's got a mean armbar also. the one he pulled on coleman showed incredible flexibility and speed. his one against ogawa showed some heavy stength.

mir also deserves props for his one on tim silvia.

Lefty, if you made this post a year ago, you would have been laughed at. Now I wonder, when will Fedor knock someone out again. I know it's a tad off topic, but the way he pounded Fujita and quickly transitioned to the rear naked choke was amazing, and to see him stagger back to his corner just put an exclamation point on it.
