    Imo he does. Lyoto amazed everyone by replicating one of the most spectacular KOs ever in mma!

    The steroid spider had to finish with gnp so this was better.

    Is Vitor the only fighter to be finished twice by that kick?

    I feel like that gif needs to be 1 second longer. The best pat is lyoto standing over him like a boss.

    As far as koty goes, I don't know, it was pretty sweet.

    In the UFC? Yes. In mma? yes. In any martial arts in general? Probably yes.

    I know I certainly wasn't expecting it a second time. Was a great knockout. Made me happy.

    Without a doubt. It was clean, it was one fatal blow, Lyoto restrained himself from unnecessary follow up shots. If you were making a video of the effectiveness of karate and only had ten seconds, this would be it. Highest level of MMA skill and sportsmanship.

    by far the cleanest/most accurate KO that I can remember this past year, so I would say yes

    It's nice. But it's really just an over hand right.

    I've only seen three KOs like that and two of them were Vitor getting KOed and two were Machida delivering the KO.

    It's a straight left off a double jab with some clean footwork

    Level of opposition should count. Vitor is shot to shit at this point.
