Who are the Top 5 UFC submission artists? That’s a good question, and one that UFC veterans Yves Edwards and Jessica Penne recently attempted to tackle.

There are no shortage of UFC submission artists to choose from. Heavyweight Fabricio Werdum is known to pull off all sorts of submissions from all sorts of angles. Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has performed some of the most spellbinding submissions that we’ve ever seen. And love her or hate her, former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was an armbar specialist that has to inject her in the conversation.

But when it comes down to it, Brian Ortega could be the best of the best of the new school, while Demian Maia, who has become known for his ever-improving boxing, has long been one of the best submission artists of the somewhat old guard.
