Did you think 3 submission GIF posts were enough? Not even close! Zombie Prophet collected another baker's dozen of spectacular submissions. Japanese submission extraordinaire Shinya Aoki grabbed two highlights here. First, he gave David "Hello Japan" Gardner a lesson in not having terrible ideas while defending a rear naked choke. I don't think Gardner took much from it, however, as he went 2-6 after losing to Aoki. Second, he taught Mizuto Hirota that if you don't tap to his hammerlock he will break your arm. Also, he doesn't care if your tapping arm is trapped during the submission.
- There's a submission called a "banana split". It looks uncomfortable.
- Never get within guillotine range of Dan Miller.
- Masakazu Imanari. 'Nuf said.
- Gil Castillo demonstrates how you can somersault into an omoplata.
Hit the jump for all Teh Gifs. T.P. Grant guest stars once again with commentary.
