    Default Top Ten Knockouts in UFC (Zuffa) History

    Today I got to watch the first three parts of the greatest ko's in ufc history and I'm sure I wasn't the only one who called 'bullshit' on multiple occasions. There were those I thought were too high (Tito over Evan Tanner), those I thought were ranked way too low (Hendo over Fedor), and a couple of the honorable mentions I felt are the very least top 100 (Daley over Scott Smith). I think I have a pretty good idea at what their top ten may look like, but I'm interested in what everyone's personal top ten knockouts are.

    For me...
    1. Anderson Silva over Vitor Belfort (UFC 126)
    2. Jose Aldo over Cub Swanson (WEC 41)
    3. Gabriel Gonzaga over Mirko Cro-Cop (UFC 70)
    4. Gary Goodridge's over Paul Herrera (UFC 8)
    5. Dan Henderson over Michael Bisping (UFC 100)
    6. Edson Barboza over Terry Etim (UFC 142)
    7. Scott Smith over Pete Sell (TUF 4 Finale)
    8. Rampage Jackson over Ricardo Arona (PRIDE Critical Countdown '04)
    9. Wanderlei Silva over Rampage Jackson (PRIDE 28)
    10. B.J. Penn over Sean Sherk (UFC 84)

    On a side note, it really did hurt to exclude Rashad over Chuck, Randleman over Cro-Cop, and Hendo over Wanderlei.

    And how many of those were even zuffa? 7?

    Weidman over Anderson has to creep onto these lists.
    And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer

    No particular order and not neccesarily Zuffa (For me Pride has nothing to do with Zuffa. I know all the history but Pride was Pride and when they did shows, they had absolutely nothing to do with Zuffa)

    Junior Dos Santos vs Mark Hunt
    Edson Barboza vs Terry Etim
    Henderson vs Bisping
    Machida vs Couture
    Anderson vs Belfort
    Gonzaga vs Mirko
    Weidman vs Anderson
    Fedor vs Arlovsky
    Randleman vs Mirko
    Wandy vs Rampage
    Rampage vs Arona
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Personally, my favorite KOs are the ones that happen during big fights. Good lists so far, for me, i love gsp knocking out hughes to get the title and matt serra getting the biggest upset ever, KOing gsp. Also, it's an old one, but BJ penn knocking out caol uno in like 10 seconds was fucking bad ass back in the day! It was so brutally done.. and then BJ penn, super hyped up, literally ran out of the building lol.


    For those curious:

    BJ Penn over Carl Uno needs to be on here. Wanderlei over Keith Jardine too. Oh, and Chuck over Tito (1 or 2, doesnt matter really, but I did prefer the 2nd time).

    Pride was not owned by Zuffa at the time of these events, therefore the events were not Zuffa events!

    Might as well just say best MMA knockouts, which may bring about sexy KO gifs from obscure promotions.
