    As violent as it is, I actually feel very peaceful every time I see the picture. The way Overeem falls is a thing of beauty.

    Definitely one of the more cartoonish and elegant, but no way is it the most aesthetically pleasing.

    It's so over-the-top, it seems staged. Like a promo shot straight outta some 2003 "cage fighting" B-movie, haha.

    Definitely an iconic MMA image for years to come. Overeem came to the UFC to make history and he finally did it!

    It was video game like KO, Mortal combat / street fighter finish.

    People like absolute stuff, for now Ngannou is the closest thing to perfection, he's unbeatable and he can KO anyone with one punch.

    Conor had that in MMA, that aura of him being able to KO anyone, anytime.

    GSP was unbeatable

    Silva was unbeatable and had Matrix moves

    Lesnar was the ultimate wrestling beast

    Bones was untouchable and had talent coming out of his ears

    There's too many good fighters nowadays, there's always very close fights, surprise KO's, champs winning and losing. Very few give the feeling that they are a sure thing.

    It is truly an amazing picture, but his eyes being closed tarnish it slightly for me. Granted, he did just get hit by a punch by Overeem, so there is no shame for his eyes being closed in that moment. However, the picture is unable to include that part of the story. Edson Barboza's picture looks so much more epic because he is staring opponent down. 9.75 outta 10. This being a heavyweight fight makes the picture awesome too, though.

    I'm so happy they finally,booked the title shot n it's fucking soon. But what the fuck why the hell did Ngannou not get KNOCK OUT OF THE NIGHT it was obvious that was knock out of the CENTURY and he got no 50,000 bonus? What the fuck? That's criminal.

    Wtf UFC? I know Dana said he would take care of him backstage but he deserves the bonus PLUS being taken care of backstage he just KOd the dude who makes 800,000 to show and he was homeless not to long ago and he comes with that amazing KO and u don't give him bonus? Shame on UFC don't think know Ngannou is a goldmine? Pay the fucking man damn

    I was listening to an interview from Ngannou the other day and he said it sucked that he didn't get the bonus. So he's obviously not happy about it. Ngannou brings that crazy KO and no bonus great job UFC ur supposed to make ur stars happy when they deliver!
