    Not in MMA. Can't even think of any in boxing. Uppercut with your lead hand is just like ... hit me right in the face please.

    George Foreman also had a really good/sneaky left hook/uppercut. he liked to step with his left lead foot, and then shift over to his right foot as he dragged his left hook/uppercut across the opponent's head/body.

    Ruddock knocked out many with his left uppercut. MMA guys should try to learn this one. It's just tough not to telegraph it.

    i forgot about Razor Ruddock's "Smash" punch. i still think that's one of the coolest looking punches.

    I would call this more of a left hook from JDS. Looks like an uppercut because he throws it from a crouch, but the path of the arm is that of a left hook.

    Ibeabuchi/Byrd was pretty sweet in boxing.

    Yeah all of those are "smash" or "shovel punch", sometimes also call upperhook or hookercut..

    Povetkin-Whyte, Ngannou-Overeem, Ngannou-Henrique are real lead uppercuts.
