A few weeks ago former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson took to Instagram to post the following video of ex-UFC welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz attempting to steal his date:

This seems to be a bit of revenge from Diaz, who told a story about Jackson once doing the same thing to him several years back when the Stockton native was a teenager:

It seems as though the beef between the two is legit, as Jackson recently did an interview with TMZ Sports in which he claimed he wanted to fight Diaz at heavyweight after he ‘disrespected’ him in front of his date (quotes via MMA Mania):

“Nick Diaz needs to step up to my weight class. That’s all I got to say. Back when MMA first started, there were no weight classes. Nick Diaz, he a warrior just like me. That’s all I got to say, he has to step up to my weight class. He disrespected me in Vegas. We both was drinking, which was good, you in Vegas, you having fun. Nick Diaz, you know you disrespected me and you was out of order motherfucker. He tried to punk me man, It ain’t cool. Come to my weight class.”

The Question: What Is the Greatest Submission in MMA History?

Even if you didn’t catch UFC 216 in person, by now you have likely seen or at least heard about Demetrious Johnson’s mind-bending armbar submission on Ray Borg in the evening’s co-main event.

Even if you didn’t catch UFC 216 in person, by now you have likely seen or at least heard about Demetrious Johnson’s mind-bending armbar submission on Ray Borg in the evening’s co-main event.

The flyweight champion suplexed Borg and on the way down jumped into position and had the armbar cinched in almost before they could settle on the ground. It was a pretty gnarly armbar too, and it helped Johnson set the UFC record for consecutive title defenses.

You know a move is good when people rush to give it a name. Plenty of pundits dubbed it “the mouse trap.” Johnson himself calls it The Mighty Wiz-Bar, which doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but hey, that’s just me.

The whole thing got the Bleacher Report MMA brain trust to thinking. What is the greatest MMA submission of all time?

Obviously, there are different ways to approach the topic. It could mean degree of difficulty. It could mean historical significance. It could be influenced by the stakes of a given contest. And it could be a combination of factors.

Several writers weigh in with their selections. A video is included for each one. They are listed in no particular order. We have Chad Dundas, Jonathan Snowden, Matthew Ryder, Jeremy Botter, Nathan McCarter, Steven Rondina and yours truly, Scott Harris. Let’s get it on.

10. Anderson Silva vs. Wild Card Gym Fighter

Even during his long reign as the UFC’s middleweight champion, legendary MMA fighter Anderson Silva made it clear that he was interested in competing in the sport of boxing and has stated many times he has the ambition to fight hall-of-famer Roy Jones Jr. in the squared circle.

In 2009, Silva trained for a week at Freddie Roach’s ‘Wild Card’ gym, humbly telling the world renowned boxing coach that “I’m pretty good at MMA, but I’m not too good at boxing.”

Roach decided to find out for himself and watched intently as he put Silva into a sparring session again an unidentified opponent in the gym.

Silva cruised through the rounds that followed, but it wasn’t until Roach later watched the UFC legend competing in the Octagon that he realized just how talented he was.

”I learned that he was just toying with my guys because when I saw him fight for real, he was a whole different guy,” Roach told Sherdog.com in 2012. “When he wants to turn it up, he’s the best.”

Roach has also gone on record stating that Silva had the best boxing of any MMA fighter he’d trained with, beating out the likes of Georges St-Pierre, BJ Penn and Nick Diaz.

Despite his lack of fighting over the last few years, Nick Diaz remains one of the biggest names in mixed martial arts, and he recently gave his opinion on the upcoming Aug. 26 boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor:

“As far as MMA, I want to say there’s maybe five guys that do jiu-jitsu that have an actual level of understanding when it comes to boxing,” Diaz told My MMA News. “He (McGregor) obviously does. I feel like, if he can hit my brother he can definitely can put up somewhat of a fight with Floyd, if not actually bring him an actual challenge.”

McGregor and Diaz’ younger brother, Nate, have fought twice to date, with Nate submitting McGregor at UFC 196 in March 2016, and McGregor scoring a majority decision in the rematch last August at UFC 202. In both fights, the “Notorious” one was somewhat successful on the feet, landing big shots and effective combinations.

At the end of the day, many have given McGregor no chance of beating Mayweather given the fact that “Money” is a former five-division world champion, with a perfect 49-0 record.

Diaz, however, admits that he doesn’t know how the fight will play out:

“I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I could say one thing, I could be wrong. Also, the ups and downs of life, you never know what’s going on. Either one of these guys could have a bad – like the last time my brother fought he had broken ribs, torn rib tissue. Neither one of those fights worked out for him. He had 13 days the first time and the next time he was injured. I was there for it.”

What do you make of Diaz’s assessment, and who are you picking to come out on top on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas?
