MMA News’ Top 10 Finishes Of The Week (11/27-12/3)

Welcome to this week’s edition of MMA News’ Top 10 Finishes of the week! Every week there’s highlight-reel finishes all across the MMA world, and we’ve found some of the absolute best ones to showcase.

This week’s list may not have the kind of crazy finishes showcased by some other editions of the Top 10, but it certainly includes plenty of brutal knockouts.

Only one of the many finishes from UFC Orlando made the cut, while ONE on Prime Video 5 missed out entirely. That promotion is still well-represented with a pair of highlights from ONE Championship 164, and this Top 10 also includes several violent finishes out of Russia.

#10: Roman Dolidze Deserves A Ranking

Roman Dolidze makes his third appearance on the Top 10 with his short-notice victory against Jack Hermansson at UFC Orlando.

The Georgian immobilized “The Joker” with a calf slicer before flattening him out to rain punches and earn his third-straight stoppage win.

#9: Micah Miller Makes His Return

Micah Miller entered the cage for the first time in six years when he faced fellow veteran Steve Siler at iKON FC 6.

“The Maverick” caught Siler in a triangle choke and landed some nasty elbows before extending an arm to force a tap.

#8: Shakhban Gapizov Stuns Rakhmatshoev

Shakhban Gapizov improved to 2-0 when he stopped the debuting Firuz Rakhmatshoev in under a minute at Eagle FC: Selection 6.

The 23-year-old sent Rakhmatshoev to his knees with a head kick before a flurry of follow-up punches forced the ref to step in.

#7: Meng Bo Opens ONE Championship 164

Meng Bo kicked off ONE Championship 164 in brutal fashion when she finished Jenelyn Olsim in the event’s opening bout.

The 26-year-old dropped Olsim with a right hand before landing a vicious series of elbows from top position that ended the fight in less than 30 seconds.

Gagan Gill walked Ryan Rohovich down before landing a finishing blow late in the first round at Battlefield Fight League 75.

The 27-year-old slipped a right hand from Rohovich while throwing a left hook to secure a walk-off KO in the final seconds of the round.

#5: Sergey Ignatenko Gets It Done Early

Sergey Ignatenko put in a quick night of work during his fight with Ravshan Akhmedov at Eagle FC: Selection 6.

Hu Yong was the second Chinese fighter to finish a Filipino opponent in their home country at ONE Championship 164 in Manila.

“Wolf Warrior” unloaded a massive right hand that sent Geje Eustaquio limp and falling to the canvas late in the first round.

#3: Igor Shardakov’s Explosive Debut

Igor Shardakov needed less than a minute to score a violent finish in his pro debut at Russian Cagefighting Championship 13.

The bantamweight dropped Maksim Vakin and followed up with a brutal series of strikes ending in a left hook after his Russian compatriot tried to stand up.

#2: Bogdan Gusko Flattens Vafaei

Bogdan Gusko picked up his third-straight first-round finish when he stopped Alireza Vafaei in 30 seconds at MMA Series 61.
