My personal favorite is Hamils over Munoz, but of the ones on the list I'm gonna say Cro Cop vs Gonzaga based on how big of an upset it was, and the irony thst it ended by a GG head kick.

the yves edwards first round ko over the punk
at the time they pretty much were the two best light weights in the ufc
that fight should have been a title match

Yves' KO over Thomson just by sheer athleticism and uniqueness + the power from the jumping spinning roundhouse landing nearly perfect, which'll usually = a highlight forever.

Honorable mention to Hamills' just because who saw Matt ever doing that? and being that brutal about it, and also Gonzaga for the same reasons unexpected to say the least and brutal.

Ya gotta give some love for Hamill over Munoz. Munoz got knocked out by his own knee after he'd already been knocked out by the kick, and it was so unexpected from Hamill.

as much as i love CC, the Gonzaga Head Kicked dripped of so much Irony.

I liked the Salmon/Rashad one too.

The Cro cop KO was definately one of the best but the Markham vs. Farber HK was just as out of the blue and devistating. Gotta love the upsets!

Haha aint that the truth

Since Cro Cop is my all time fav fighter, I think the irony of the Gonzaga head kick alone made it a shocking moment for me. And I also thought Cro Cop was seriously injured. That was such a clean knockout. Cro Cop will hopefully get his chance to return the favor to GG in the upcoming months

Barboza KO Etim
Silva KO Belfort
Aldo KO Mendes

All these seem to be missing from the discussion, but I think they deserve recognition. Some of the best kick KOs in the UFC, imo.
