    I had to go with Matt Brown. Sanchez dropped like he was relieved of his soul.

    It's damn close with some of them... but I saw that Matt Brown KO live & no way any close decision isn't swayed by that. I had my Just Bleed frenzie on for that fight anyway... & it was glorious when it ended like that.

    I would say it was Overeem who made the KO beautiful. Well done, the Demolition Man

    Ngannou. That was just a brutal HW KO. I generally prefer fancier shit, but sometimes a HW can just work wonders with his hands.

    This is a real tough one. I have my favorites, and I think I'm going with the one most likely to happen in a movie.

    Gifs though, top notch AC.

    even though there were more technical and flashy ones, you just have to go with ngannou's because it was the scariest.

    I gave my vote to Rose vs JJ. Not only did Rose knock her out and win the belt it was the biggest upset of the year and ended Joanna's reign over the division where she really dominated her opponents and Rose did it inside of 3 minutes.

    Meanest KO was certainly Ngannou vs Reem which btw didn't get a performance bonus afterwards somehow. Brown/Sanchez and Barboza/Dariush are also good candidates
