    What is your favorite? Mine would be Frank Shamrock vs. Igor Zinoviev, it's extremely unfortonate Igor was injured, so I feel a bit bad with it being my favorite cause he never fought again.

    10 minutes, cannot watch now.

    Do they have Simms v Mir, with the follow up stomps? I liked that one :)

    (EDIT: just fast forwarded through, didn't see Simms v Mir. Not surprisingly.)

    I liked F Shamrock's, but I still have to go with the (Rocky 2 like) Hughes v Newton. Because it was just so unique.

    It's amazing how many of these slam KO's were actually headbutts

    Also, Gerald Harris repeated his David Branch KO in a different promotion a few years back...

    Well if we're going outside UFC, there's the 2 (arguably) best slams ever in the same PrideFC event....

    The Tito on Evan Tanner, Dominique Steel, Josh Burkman ones were all Headbutts. IMO they should be deemed a NC if not a DQ loss. Tito's one was especially egregious and intentional.

    The Randleplex was awesome, but it did not KO Fedor...

    A little of topic, but it’s insane that Fedor survived that and pulled off a sub like a minute later.

    I remember posting a gif of the slam in a boxing forum I like to frequent back in like 2006, and one of the members got mad at me because he thought I was legitimately posting someone either dying or being paralyzed for the rest of his life...

    I remember him saying things like “what’s wrong with you?” and “do you enjoy watching people suffer?”

    It was great.

    Frank's slam on Igor was the first one that popped up right away. If you watch that slam in slow motion that execution of strength and skill was beautiful.

    I always thought tito sort of intentionally head-butted Tanner (RIP Evan)

    The Steele/MA KO was clearly a head butt as well IMO

    USADA has robbed us of some EXPLOSIVE slam KOs

    Great thread man. Well done.

    Need more of these kind of threads on here.

    I also liked that Harris didn't even follow up after his slam. Good sportsmanship.

    The title immediately made me think of Rampage's slam to head butt combo

    Clearly the great slam in MMA history

    1. Randleman slam didn't end fight
    2. Shamrock slam was very early on and anticlimatic

    Arona/Rampage was a huge fight at the time and it appeared as if Page may have been in trouble there

    1:40 check out how Harris wedges his forearm under the chin, and into the neck of his opponent during the slam. I'm not even sure what to take from that.

    NRS 467.030)  The following acts constitute fouls in a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts:

    seems like he intentionally dropped him onto his head?

    I feel where you're coming from, but most of these aren't intentional headbutts and are sort of hard to separate out whether the head hitting the mat or the headbutt did the most damage. The head against head is just using head control in the clinch. During the slam, the heads stay positioned the same. Usually the slammer has his forehead in the chin or against the jaw of the slammee.
