    The Anderson one is the most famous, especially because it was Anderson Silva and it ended his dominant run by a shocking KO

    Not to mention he got knocked out in the process of showboating; Cody did a little dancing, but he wasn't knocked out during. Still salty when reminded of te chris knocking out silva

    Still pissed that Silva fucked around the entire fight before getting KO’d. He’s one of my favorites, but he was frustrating to watch at times. Great highlights though.

    Personally I like the Leben fight bc he was losing that match up until the knockout. Supposedly he had a stomach virus too

    Omfg some epic ones here.

    #1 Anderson -Just because of who it was.
    #2 Betche -Taunting for a head kick then getting stiffened so hard is pretty epic + Holly HK is boner worthy.

    #3 No love -Would be higher but those other two are just so good.

    I read this essay the other day saying that he wasn’t just clowning, but rather showboating was one of his tactics. It’s how he won the Brunson fight - talking, mocking, dancing around etc.

    Yeah he would do it a lot. Especially towards grapplers to bait them into a striking match. Unfortunately, he didn’t know Weidman can strike. Actually no body did.

    Prime Weidman was so strong in his wrestling and had good cardio, damn. Plus good striking. I thought he‘d rule the division for much longer, then again I just started watching MMA.

    Damn, I miss Nakamura! That guy was a warrior. The UFC should’ve built him up a lil more. Him and Ryo Chonan.

    Anderson's is the most monumental but I think Bethe's is the funniest because who da fook is she to even pretend she ever possessed Anderson Silva reflexes?

    Anderson’s is the most famous, especially since there was so much on the line against the greatest striker mma had ever seen

    But I can’t blame him. Showboating was a huge tatic of his. He didn’t get KO’d because he didn’t respect the Chris, in fact I think it was because he respected the danger of the Chris and his wrestling immensely. The more afraid Anderson is of you the more he will taunt.
    See: Demian Maia

    Even though he didn’t necessarily respect Forrest or Okami as much, he mentally broke them with his antics before the tko’s.
    I think Bonnars was actually just showboating though, not sure if it was a real tactic to land counter strikes

    Anderson vs Weidman is the best, I had been waiting for someone to catch that cocky fuck when he would pull that crap for so long. I was shocke dthat is was actually Weidman that did it.
