Nominees Joaquin "New Mansa" Buckley: 2-1 in 2020 Although he started off 2020 on a rough note, losing his UFC debut to Kevin Holland, "New Mansa" notched two strong candidates for "Knockout of the Year," both against previously undefeated fighters. Gilbert "Durinho" Burns: 2-0 in 2020 Soundly defeated a Top-10 and then a Top-5 fighter in Demian Maia and Tyron Woodley to propel himself into title contention at welterweight. Khamzat "Borz" Chimaev: 3-0 in 2020 Debuted in the UFC, won his first three fights in dominant fashion, became the UFC's promotional darling, and secured a matchup with a Top 5 fighter in Leon Edwards—all in less than six months. Kevin "Trailblazer" Holland: 5-0 in 2020 Became just the third fighter in UFC history to go 5-0 in a calendar year, wrapping things up with a knockout of longtime contender Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in December. "Lucky" Lauren Murphy: 3-0 in 2020 At age 37, Murphy catapulted herself from also-ran to probable title challenger in the flyweight division. Kalinn "Khaos" Williams: 2-1 in 2020 Debuted in the UFC, won his first two fights by knockout in under a minute of total cage time, but he lost his third this year by decision to Michel Pereira.
