    He's one of those fighters that you can't let get comfortable.

    When he gets in his zone he lets everything fly like he's just training

    I feel like a lot of good KO's didnt make the list.. anyway I voted for Rose/Joanna cause that was truly surprising, where as GlassJoevereem getting KOed wasn't.

    I know everybody is going to vote for Reem getting KTFO but for me it's Matt Brown.

    There is something special about elbow KOs, I just love them so much.

    I voted for Ngannou's because it was the only one I legit thought the opponent might be dead

    Yup, the Plat HELLBOW should definitely be represented in this poll.

    Holy Sh*t... I totally spaced that when I first saw the nominationz. WTF?

    @Augustus Caesar No Plat Hellbow but we got a knockdown in the KO of the Year thread?

    Voted for Brown, but Ngannou was just as vicious.

    I have to say: 2017 was a fine year for devastating KOs.

    We had plenty, and in a myriad of ways too, elbow KOs, head removing KO, 1-2 KO, devastating knees (pick your favorite!), punches and kicks served as humble pies, it's hard to pick one without being unfair to all the others.

    I'd just like to ask any admin to put up Alex Oliveira's last KO against LaFlare, dude KOed LaFlare and sidestepped for him to fall gracefully dead on the ground. It's clear: He knew that was the last punch of that fight, damn.

    Francis/Alistair being the first choice is the right choice.

    For some reason, Ngannou's knockout doesn't do anything for me.
    I like Brown's KO.

    Came in to vote for the Hellbow; A bit silly to not see it as an option.

    Francis because of the level of competition and the fact that he knocked him stiff.

    The best knockout in terms of eye candy goes to Nganou, but it really wasn't a surprise to anyone.

    Rose knocking out JJ came out of nowhere, and I would have never expected it.
