Top 20 knockouts in UFC history

 

To promote the UFC 167: 'St-Pierre vs. Hendricks' 20th anniversary show on Nov. 16, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, UFC.com compiled a list of the 20 greatest knockouts in the league's history.

Silva was fighting until he got knocked out. But yeh, the list is pretty weird.

I'm just here to point out that the word "finite" is completely misused in the caption to this article. A great knockout is a thing of beauty. It might be the most finite way to end a bout. I'd suggest "emphatic" instead. /EDITOR MODE OFF

If TUF KO's can be included I think Uriah Hall over Adam Cella takes that cake!!!

I put a Rumble gif a few post above. I wish the gif was longer, Tommy Speers was knocked out but was resting on his knee. Never seen anyone get knocke dout and sit like that.
