    There were many super-brutal slams in the history of this lovely sport. When it comes to the UFC, I definitively vote for Hughes vs Newton.
    But in PRIDE FC, my vote goes to Rampage Jackson vs Ricardo Arona. While Arona was busy working on the triangle choke, Rampage lift him up and ended the fight!

    It probably was the best slam in the sport, at the very least on par with Randleman vs Fedor. Severn vs Macias was also good, but might have been a work. There was Michael Chandler hitting Benson Henderson cleanly with a suplex as well.

    This one was also a great slam:

    Nick Denis, a retired Canadian MMA fighter hit an incredible slam on a smaller circuit that is just insanely fucking brutal.

    wow, I thought Lungu was a Judoka!
    Yeah, Randleman vs Fedor was a brutal one, but Fedor survived and won the fight. Chandler vs Henderson was a great one too. Severn vs Macias there were few slams I think, as Dan was a lot heavier opponent. Hughes vs Newton and Hughes Vs Trigg were epic ones too. I vote for Rampage at Pride because it was a really wild one.

    The Rampage slam stands out for a multitude of reasons: Two high level LHWs in their prime, Arona was a Jiu-Jitsu expert and had Rampage in a triangle, Rampage picked him up over his head and it ended up finishing the fight. You can make the argument that the headbutt on the way down was actually the reason for the KO but it was still unbelievable and I'm still impressed to this day.

    The Hughes slam vs Newton is hilarious because Newton put Hughes to sleep but ended up getting KO'd because Hughes fell over while Carlos was still holding on and when when Matt woke up after he landed he was given the victory.

    I'm pretty sure the Severn vs Macias slam(s) were a work IIRC similar to Horn vs Hughes in ADCC where the slamee was complicit.

    Travis Fultons slam of this guy was another brutal slam.


    There was also the time where DC picked up and slammed Barnett.


    Reminds me of this one which Minakov hit in his career debut.

    If Lungu came in the sport when he was a lot younger and in better shape (able to at least cut to 265) he would have been a pretty decent HW, he has an interesting skillset.

    One of my favourite slam KO's because I was watching live via stream and this is the only time I've seen this happen (although it happened again to Roxanne against an opponent on TUF, but I think she survived) in women's MMA

    Not even close but this was the similar slam on TUF she suffered

    New Year's Eve, 1997...

    The Aman hotel, Tokyo, Japan...

    Your mom and I are attending a wedding, she gets a scallop wrapped in bacon lodged in her airway and gives the international sign for "I'm choking".

    I come from behind, bear-hug Judy, my love, and start drunkenly Heimliching her as hard as humanly possible. Due to a leak in the ballroom's water feature, I lose my footing and we go ass-over-tea-kettle, effectively German suplexing her through a buffet table.

    Long story short, on impact, the scallop shot out of your mom's vallecula like musket fire.

    When the dust settles, we realize other than a sore back everything is gravy and we dance the night away.

    Best slam ever.

    I hope that answers your question, and I hope you finished your homework. Dinner should be ready in about a half-hour or so.

    The reaction of the guy that got slammed. Scary

    Among the ones I saw on DVD, Rampage vs Arona for the impact. Randleman vs Fedor for the aesthetically pleasing technique where it looked like both his weight and Fedor's weight went down on Fedor.

    Seems most of the slams are almost gently placing opponent on the ground.

    Sarah was a beast in SF.
    Her striking and footwork was pretty decent.

    Another one from the regional circuit:

    Wes Sims vs Edwin Allseitz remains the only release powerbomb I've ever seen in MMA, that was crazy. Too bad for the soccer kick that DQ's big Wes at the end, Mark Coleman protested vehemently but alas...

    ps: RIP Mr Allseitz, who passed away in his sleep about 3 years after this fight...

    Thank for sharing, I've never seen that one before.

    Rampage hit a guy with a powerbomb(ish) in his second fight:


    Actually slammed the guy quite a few times leading up to it as well.

    Holy smokes how did you find this? I was asking about this fight a few weeks ago. (haven't been able to find the video for years.)

    Smoking out back with Sak.
    Sarah Kaufman.... I forgot about that.

    Tito KO'd Tanner with a slam.

    Melendez used to swing guys around who took his back and spike them on their head.

    Rampage Igor slam was pretty good too.
