    Submission defence has gone through the roof in the last little while, just like take down defense and scrambles. It's just part of the evolution of the sport: people are training proper submission defence from the start.

    I don't keep track of TDAC/TDD, I leave that to the UFC/FightMetric.

    So not only has it been steadily declining from around 1/3 of fights ending via submission, but it's actually declined by 8 or more percentage points between 2007 and 2011 has been closer to 1/5-1/6 since the beginning of the decade, which is close to a 50% decrease.

    I forget that one. I will have to go on a marathon and watch his fights again. My personal favorite was when Alan Belcher fucked Palhares up in his own world.
