And it can be any promotion, not just UFC, I just don't want to post in the Lounge because the thread would get buried.

Not fights you would've never guessed the winner, but regardless of winner, fights you would've never picked the correct ending to. Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop fits just being that it was a head kick KO.

I was just thinking about the Kimbo vs. Houston Alexander fight and I never would've picked a Decision on that. I didn't think there was even a halfway decent chance it'd make it to the end of the 1st.

Kevin Burns triangling Roan Carneiro is another. Their ground games were on such different levels I would've never picked the at-the-time unknown Burns to make Carneiro tap.

Others?

Takaya KO'ing Hellboy. Takaya is a striker, but Hellboy had never been KO'd and he'd faced the best of the best. If anything, I thought a decision was Takaya's only path to victory.

Tito vs. Bader, Tito hadn't won by a submission hold in over 14 years. Even the minority that thought he'd win must've had a decision or some ground and pound to a TKO.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

all of these are great and i was about ot post a lot of them myself. here are some other one i think fit the bill:

*Potential finish*- i first want to point out that if Mark Hunt submitted Rothwell with an armbar it would be at the top of everyone's life forever...perhaps equal to GG vs CC

Saunders submitting Santos - Bellator 53 (i just thought that fight would be a striking war, and Santos is a BB so it was a shock he got subbed)

Herman heel hooking Noke - UFC Hardy vs Lytle...i just didn't think Herman could land a leg lock on Noke, or submit him for that matter

Lesnar submitting Carwin - UFC 116...i just didn't think either one could take the other down. plus they both had such power, i figured one would KO the other. that was almost the case, but Lesnar submitting someone was shocking at the time.

Pat Curran KOing Sandro - Bellator 48...I just didn't think Curran could out strike him. i either thought Sandro would KO him, pick him apart or Curran would take him down or sub him.

Matyushenko KOing Brilz - UFC 129...i thought for sure this would go to decision, and thought there was no way Vlad could KO Brilz ont he feet the way he did.

Matt Hughes submitting Almeida - UFC 117...i didn't think i would ever see Almeida be submitted in the UFC, and the way Hughes just put him to sleep was certainly shocking

Hallman KOing Karo - UFC 123...Hallman didn't have a TKO victory since 2003, and only 3 in his career (over 60 fights) so i was shocked when he KOed Karo so quick.


EDIT: i started writing this a while ago and didn't see someone else say Lesnar over Carwin

Like the others that have been mentioned.

Speaking of Lesnar/Carwin and the subject at hand...

This was my prediction for a contest on another MMA website. If you'll notice the round and time, they ended up being an exact match to reality...only difference was that it ended in a sub, which I of coarse did not see coming. If I had only picked sub instead of TKO, I would have officially changed my username to grappstradamus.
