i have never seen a more vicious KO then Wandy over Jardine. i mean, i have seen punches that almost rip the other guy's head off, but the way he just held his throat and pinned his head against the mat was just epic. nothing tops that imo, not even Rory's luck kick.

I'm not too impressed with the Sub list. I think it drops off after the top five or so. But I think the Thiago Alves KO of Karo should be in the top ten somewhere.

UFC list or not...

Arlovski's smashing of Rothwell has to be on this list!

Having seen most of those KOs I definitely agree with most, if not all, on that list. I agree with Markham being #1, to me that brought back memories of Gonzaga's KO against Cro Cop. Not to mention Farber showed us how to perfectly sell a KO.

another thing i would like to add is that a RNC should never be considered a top submission unless it was secured after a beautiful transition.
