    What is your favourite front kick stoppage? Mine's Anderson Silvas, to land it on a guy like Belfort, who had never been previously stopped like that is amazing. Yes, Couture stopped him, but it was a barrage of punches over a long period of time which lead to the TKO.

    Isn't it funny, there's been 4 front kick to the face KO's in the UFC, and all four of them happened in recent years. While there's only been a total of 2 in world wide MMA (3 if you count Santos) that's been recorded (there could be others, but are unknown to records). I included the Santos front kick, because that is what lead to the end of the fight, the front kick staggered him, then the beautiful flying knee finished him off. You don't have to count it as one, but I definitely thought that finish deserves some love here so I added it in, also incase people haven't seen it.

    Silva because of the magnitude of their fight and how it was against a great striker like Vitor.

    I'm gonna have to go with Browne. Partially because it capped off a come-back for the ages, but mostly because of who it was against. The only other person I enjoy seeing get knocked out as much as I do Alistair Overeem is Michael Bisping.

    I voted for the Lyoto Machida front kick on Randy Couture. That was the last fight of Couture's career.

    Silva and Machida were incredible to see bc no one had been doing that before.

    They're all impressive, but those were the most profound to me.

    The most picture-perfect was Anderson's. Lyoto's, I've always thought it looked pretty silly.

    Anderson's kick on Belfort, then Machida's kick on Couture probably.

    Silva's. Although Lyoto's kick was nice, he had to jump to achieve it. Silva barely moved position. Also, it was against a fighter that wasn't so far removed from his prime.

    LOL thanks, thought I had them all. Just checked his record, he needs to be in the UFC. The only guy to KO him, he got the KO back.

    Not an Anderson fan, but his was clearly the best. Look at the quality of opponent too.

    Went for Browne, was getting destroyed, was throwing the kick 100s of times and the Reem still let it connect in the end and got ktfo.

    oh yeah i think ive seen that before. i still feel like anderson was a pioneer when it comes to the front kick, you rarely saw it before him now its part of most fighters arsenals.

    I like Lyoto's best because it's so karate kid style

    Silva's is a very very close second though because of how casual he threw it and how Belfort folds like a lawnchair
