Daniele Bolelli provides a superb overview by analyzing 176 matches that took place between 1993 and 1999 under the UFC umbrella. He also highlights the different ways in which grappling techniques are currently used in mixed martial arts competition.

Dr. Rhadi Ferguson zeros in on armbar and chokehold submissions to conclude just how often these were utilized in 1,263 UFC bouts. His works here can assist mixed martial arts professionals with analytical information to help them in training practices and winning strategies.

Other chapters provide insightful text and the photographic detail on: chokes, armlocks, and leg locks. Andew Zerling offers three chapters with the precious help of his teacher, Renzo Gracie.
