Hall's was smoother and was a straight knockout, nothing extra needed. Vitor's was in a bigger moment and against a better opponent. If we're just talking about the kick itself, Hall, but if we're talking about the entire package, that makes wayyy harder.

I think Hall's was more aesthetic, but i need to take the level of opponent into consideration, so I am going to say Vitor's.

And it's the spinning hook kick, no offense, but it's harder to pull of than the spinning back kick, so just to give them credit.

same here.  to pull it off on #5 mw is more impressive than a guy I can't remember the name of during an exhibition match on a reality show.

Not even the same thing. Vitor's knocked him down and then he put him out with a right hand. That's not a spinning back kick KO. Beautiful technique leading to the finish for sure though. Phone Post

From the biggest Vitor nut hugger on the forum, it was great, and big.
But I have to echo others who view the form rather than the stage. Phone Post

Vitors was on the grand stage main event PPV and was just as nasty.

Vitor FTW!

Mix6APlix - They were both sloppy. I would have done it better. Barbosa's is better than either.
I hope you're joking about the first part. Agreed about Barbosa's technique > all Phone Post

There is absolutely no way to say Vitor's was just as nasty. Not even remotely close to as nasty. Didn't even knock him out... Phone Post

I say Hall simply because it was a walk off shot. Belfort's was fantastic, but he had to follow up with GnP to finish Rockhold.

If hall landed that kick or rockhold would it of knocked him out or down? I bet vitors kick would've knocked halls opponent out. Phone Post

The thing I love about Barboza's kick is that he got to finish his rotation and turn all the way through.

Made it look so damn brutal.

Barbosa's technique is the best, i could watch that gif all day, complete rotation, keeps his balance all the way through and is ready to throw again as soon as he finishes the kick. But vitors is more impressive because of the opponent, throwing a kick well is great, but throwing a kick like that and landing it becomes a smaller window of opportunity with the caliber of opponent, and vitor had already thrown that kick once in the fight so rockhold should have been a bit more cautious to that aspect of vitors striking repertoire rather than just his hands Phone Post 3.0
