fabricio-werdum-11. Fabricio Werdum

When it comes to submission grappling, in my opinion, Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum is the best around at this time, and one of the very best of all time. Werdum is a second degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a two-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion, a two-time Abu Dhabi Combat Club World Heavyweight champion, and a European jiu-jitsu champion. “Vai Cavalo’s” mat skills has transferred over the Octagon as well, as he has 10 career submission wins, and has submitted some of the best heavyweights of all time including Fedor Emelianenko, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and most recently, Cain Velasquez. Due to his decorated legacy, Fabricio Werdum stands as the best submission artist in the UFC right now on my list.
