Year End Awards 2011


Quick note: the "submission of the year" was a tough one to break down, because there were tons of great submissions that weren't particularly spectacular but were important for different reasons (Ortiz-Bader, Mir-Nog II, etc.), so I decided to focus on the most outlandish ones.

And now, part two!

Submission of the Year

Richard Hale def. Nik Fekete (inverted triangle) - Unlike the notorious inverted triangle that Toby Imada secured on Jorge Masvidal, this was not a case of a guy being caught and then not taking the hold seriously; this was a struggle. Hale latched onto the submission like a koala. Fekete responded by crawling around before standing up and attempting to break the grip Hale had around his body. He even tried to grab his own leg to prevent Hale from grabbing it first, but this action proved fruitless, and he was dragged to the ground. No more than 2 seconds later, he was unconscious (as his right arm laying dormant on the canvas for a solid 7 seconds would overwhelmingly suggest), but it wasn't due to a lack of trying to get out. Spectacular stuff.

Thanks to anyone who reads. I hope people enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed thinking and writing about it. Happy holidays!
