    IDK maybe they put it because it was only 20 second fight and Jairzinho suffered his 1st loss in MMA

    Gotta be Buckley. I scared my dogs when I couldn't contain the shout of awe when that landed.
    Second has to be Holland from the bottom. Jacare folding like a broken lawn chair from the top...wow.

    was surprised to see it on the list...it's a KO, but nothing technical about it, he's just wildly throwing his punches hoping one will land. And luckily for him one did

    So sweet. I can't believe we have to live without soccer kicks most of the time.

    Easily Khalidov, at this stage of his career and in a rematch - he checks all the boxes

    Why is the O'malley KO even there, so bizarre lol. Its the most regular looking KO you could possibly have. So overrated

    Buckley it is, but Jordan Leavitt vs. Matt Wiman slam deserves a mention, that was one of a kind.

    The slow motion makes it look bad AF, just swinging with no technique or accuracy at all, lucky for him in real speed it happened quite fast and he landed on Roz.

    Dariush over Holtzman was better than all except Buckley and Cody.

    Holland KO'ing Jacare the way he did was crazy, and those follow up blows were vicious looking. I can't see anything topping Joaquin's KO this year tho

    I really like Cody’s. I know I really like it because I dislike Cody personally and generally as a fighter, but I still liked the KO a lot. The timing and the crazy movie style duck and full body spring into the punch was so sick. Still, I voted for Buckley.
