From Best to Worst
7, 9, 43, 3.50, 12
2, 3 and 5 are like moves from a video game but 4 helped to get rid of that DNB, so I would vote that one. It was the most satisfying KO.
Good collection of KOs.
Only based on performance:
Base on feelings:
best & worst are the same thing
1) Edson's kick was probably the best UFC KO of all time IMO
2) Hendo is Hendo - legend, what more can you say?
3) Masvidal was awesome, props to him.
4) Rhonda getting KO'd was cool but it wasn't the best day of my life as some of you proclaim
5) fuck Yair he got lucky
Performance based? Masvidal had a...
You're pretty spot on.
Henderson/Bisping takes the number one spot for me because of how iconic it is.
Mas and Yair KOs would be the hardest to replicate. I don't like the word "lucky", but the chances of seeing either of these KO again are nill. Yair was about to lose that fight, and one could argue that Mas was about to get humped to a decision. Both of these KOs are a hail mary that paid off. Still amazing, but I tend to put less of a premium on these kinds of KOs. #4 and #5 for me.
Ronda and Bisping KOs are the most satisfying due to the personalities of the KO recipients. I'm ok with Bisping now, but back then he wasn't generally as well received. Hendo delivered one of the most egregious and unnecessary follow ups of all time, but he's Hendo so we applaud it. In terms of sheer brutality and satisfaction, these are my #1 and #2.
That Barboza KO was beautiful, smooth, and utterly devastating. Pure skill and technique. Etim looked like he got shot. #1 for pure technique imo.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that they're all beautiful for different reasons. But gun to my head:
Holly KO Ronda
Mas Knee KO Askren
Etim Death by Heel Kick
Yair Elbows Zombie
The Holly KO is definitely the most satisfying in history for sure
Yair's was by far the best considering there was once second left in the 5th round and he was probably going to lose a decision
Holly's was the most satisfying and my favorite
In terms of impact on society and sport, Holly number 1 by far. But in terms of just physical action, my order Edson, Hendo, Yair, Masvidal, Holly.
I think Yair is by far hardest to replicate. And i'm not considering time left in fight and who was winning. Maybe without the running start but there have been a number of jump knee KOs ( Edson has one ). But I dont remember even close to Yair.
