Esther Lin

The results are in and the Bloody Elbow readers have decided. Your winner for WMMA Submission of the year is ...

After a few weeks of voting, and some furious social networking from fighters, the results are finally here.

Best Submission

Winner: Rose Namajunas (54%) flying armbars Kathina Catron into oblivion... in 12 seconds. The work speaks for itself.

2nd place: Ronda Rousey (27%) armbars Miesha Tate again

Other nominees: Michelle Waterson vs. Jessica Penne (7%), Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche (6%). Alexis Davis vs. Shayna Baszler (3%), Jessica Penne vs. Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc (2%), Camila Lima vs. Bianca Reis (1%), Emi Fujino vs. Amber Brown (1%)

My pick: Voting got it right in my books. I'd like to give some big props to Alexis Davis for being the first to submit Shayna Baszler (she went to sleep as well, also a first). And to Jessica Penne. This girl's long, long legs like Jon Jones' arms allow for some funky moves you wouldn't see anywhere else. She CROSSED her damned legs like they teach you in Kindergarten, then transitioned to the body triangle and tapped out Nicdali.
