With last night's Anthony Pettis KO of Benson Henderson, featuring a never before seen (by these eyes anyway) running-trampoline-jump-off-the-cage-spinning-side-kick-to-the-face move, it got me to thinking about some of the best KO's, or stoppages, I've ever seen.
The above mentioned move was pretty sweet, but I'm not sure how it stacks up to some of these:
- Spencer Fisher's flying knee to the face of a cocking off Matt Wiman. If you haven't seen it, look it up. It's devastating and hilarious all in one. This might be my all-time favorite KO, but the next one might nudge it...
- Dan Henderson's crow hop over hand right, followed by the body slam fist hammer to the totally exposed face of the now completely out Michael Bisping. Absolute destruction.
Those are two of my favorites. What does everyones else have, and not just UFC/WEC either.
- Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Meldrick Taylor
- Roy Jones Jr. vs a multitude of lesser fighters
- Chuck Liddell's KO of Babalu Sobral
- Gabriel Gonzalez leg kick vs. Mirko Cro Cop
