10 Best UFC Biggest Knockouts
Since the Ultimate Fighting Championship or "UFC" has been around it has produced 10 best UFC biggest knockouts known to man. These knockouts have ranged from perfectly placed grapples and submissions all the way to one punch standing knockouts. Fighters like Chuck Liddell and Randy Cotour have brought more fame to the sport as their matches have become more intense and more exciting to watch.
- Chuck Liddell Vs. Tito Ortiz: With both of these fighters having once been friends and training partners, this was one of the biggest billed fights in UFC history. Posters were everywhere as Tito Ortiz openly challenged the Ice Man (Chuck Liddell) verbally; however, when the two entered the octagon and the bells rang, it was a short match. Chuck Liddell came out swinging and literally beat Tito Ortiz down into submission. The match was over in less than eight minutes.
- Dan Henderson Vs Michael Bisping: These two fighters had a continuous feud that could only be settled one way, and that way was in the UFC octagon. In the first round, this fight seemed like it could have been anyone's game until Henderson let out a right hook that hit Bisping so hard he saw the curvature of the earth. Unfortunately, Henderson followed the knockout shot with a right hook that landed square into the already unconscious Bisping. This was one of the more controversial knockouts in UFC history; it is, however, also one of the most memorable.
- BJ Penn Vs. Matt Hughes: When this fight began Matt Hughes had a slew of victories behind him that made him seem almost invincible; however, this story echoes that old proverb: "The bigger they are, the harder they fall." BJ Penn knocked out Matt Hughes with a back choke hold in one of the biggest upsets of the year.
- Todd Duffee Vs. Tim Hague: This match has made this list due to the sheer speed of victory. The bell rang and then seven seconds later, a victor was declared. This is the fastest knockout in UFC history.
- Anderson Silva Vs Rich Franklin: Anderson Silva is known for having a bizarre training regiment that includes using a banana tree as a makeshift exercise machine. It turned out that this kind of bizarre training can pay off when Silva sent Franklin to the ground with a series of knees to the face.
- Chuck Liddell vs Renato Sobral: The Ice Man cometh and the Ice Man cometh again. This match ended with the kind of kick to the head that's usually reserved for fancy martial arts in movies.
- Matt Hughes Vs Carl Newton: This fight deserves a special place on this list for being the first double knockout ever televised. Newton had Hughes in a choke when Hughes decided to use his last breath to slam Newton to the mat. As a result, when they hit the ground they were both out like lightbulbs.
- Houston Alexander Vs Keith Jaradine: Houston Alexander's match with Keith Jaradine was a bit of a surprise thanks to the age difference. With Jaradine having recently started his career and Alexander's coming to a close, most of the UFC crowd thought that Jaradine would mow through him. That, however, was not the case as Alexander corrected the mistaken UFC fans with a series of blows only to end with a devastating knee.
- Pedro Rizza Vs Josh Barnett: Josh Barnett has been defeated via TKO several times but Pedro Rizzo is the one and only fighter to ever knock him out without question.
- Chuck Liddell vs Quintin (Rampage) Jackson: They say once you've reached the top the only way to go is down. This was the case for the Ice Man when he was defeated by former PRIDE fighting champion Quintin Rampage Jackson.
