The armbar is one of the most classic finishing submissions in all of mixed martial arts. The world’s most elite grapplers have all used this move at some point in their careers. It is a common move that pretty much everyone should have in their arsenal.
Perhaps the biggest name to have used the armbar in recent times is Ronda Rousey. Rousey, the former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, finished the majority of her foes via armbar.
