Every Americana Finish in UFC History

  • Published: 14 January 2020
  • Relive every official americana finish, also known as a keylock, in UFC history thus far. More popular in the early part of the promotion's history, the americana is a rare finish inside the Octagon. The most notable americana came from light heavyweight champion Jon Jones against Vitor Belfort at UFC 152.

                          He tapped before the submission was really on, but I think he just wanted to get out of there. He was a 185 lbs dude fighting someone who was 300 lbs.

                                  The Kimura and Americana seem pretty rare these days. Very surprising especially since you don't need to give up top position in order to attain the submission. Even the straight armbar can get a tap if done correctly.

                                        Only 4 or 5 Americana's in the entire UFC history. This proves what all Jiu-Jitsu fighters know - it's almost impossible to catch a trained fighter in an Americana armlock. It's too easy to defend and to see coming. It's much more effective and easy to achieve on the street, against untrained opponents.

                                          literally an amateur submission...so yeah, if youre a pro and get finished by that, something went wrong.

And a little harder to set up if the opponent knows what you're doing. You used to see a lot more triangles and arm bars too. Back then there were people who were still white belts competing at UFC level. Complete guess but I'd say more than half the roster were blue belts or lower.

You see mostly guillotines and rear nakeds now.. there are a few submissions that seem to be declining in use over the last decade.
