The UFC has given us some thrilling fights. Whether it's the under card or the main card, you can always settle in for an entertaining battle when two fighters step into the Octagon. These are the fastest submission victories in UFC history.

While some fighters are striking specialists, everyone knows that to survive in the UFC, you have to be a well-rounded MMA fighter and handle yourself when the fight is taken to the ground. Submit or be submitted when it comes to UFC ultimate submissions, and those submissions can seemingly come out of nowhere. Everyone has a plan until their arm is about to be yanked out of its socket.

We've already shown you the quickest knockouts in UFC history, and there are some equally quick submissions. So we're now counting down the quickest and best submissions in UFC history... the quickest submissions of all time.
