    Strikes are usually graded based on power and ability to knock someone out. For this thread, I just want to show some appreciation for those strikes that are simply amazing to look at regardless of how strong they are. Take a look at this example of GSP's superman punch:

    I don't think anyone can do a more graceful and technically sound superman punch than GSP. There's also Edson Barboza's amazing roundhouse kick (which actually knocked out his opponent):

    Any other examples of picture-perfect strikes?

    The cover-roll hook Rampage landed on Wandy was pretty sweet.

    I quit kickboxing the day I saw this strike. I knew I could never come close to such perfect technique and fell into a deep depression:

    Did that actually hit the guy? For it to be a beautiful strike, it actually has to hit something. It looks insane.

    For me, it's the monsterous overhand Minotauro landed on Schaub

    I've watched that countless times, it's an incredible feat of violence and amazing to watch.

    Probably never see that again.
     
  18. Yeah that's easily my fav KO of Andersons. Weidmans elbow on Munoz was perfectly timed too.

    Loads of sweet strikes already mentioned, but I would like to add this one. It's actually two punches but it's just picture perfect.
