Best Answer

A Submission move in the UFC refers to a hold like a Guillotine Choke or a Kimura lock where one fighter locks up his opponent in such a way that one of their body parts is compressed/stretched which causes immense pain. The person who is caught in the hold is given a chance to top out which means that they agree to lose the fight. This is called a "Submission" which is a very popular way of winning a fight.

Some of the popular submission holds are: Guillotine Choke, Kimura, Arm-bar, Rear naked choke etc
