Haha.. hard to argue with some of those knockouts. Although I think Sakurai's should have been number one. Lights out on the feet is always great

On a side note- I love watching Randleman fight. Sometimes that guy just explodes with some of the most devastating shit. He's got one of the classic knockouts on Crocop and probably the most classic slam ever on Fedor.

I like all those KOs but c'mon James Thompson vs. Fujita? The only Thompson fight I would put in the top ten knock outs is when Aleksander put to sleep.

There could so many on the list. Who ever made this had a hard job. I do think he missed 2 or 3 of the best ever though. As some one mentioned Cro Cop KOing Igor was insane. Igor KOing Bueno is one of my favorite in all of MMA history. Last but not least Yvel KOing Big Daddy is out standing as well.

I don't know how Mirko's LHK's aren't on there...I thought andersons flying knee should also be on there.

Igor KO'ing Bueno should have been on there, that was brutal, like Baroni versus Dave Menne, only Igor hits twice as hard!

Igor actually scored a very similar KO over someone at a later Pride event, it was his comeback after a lay off, he had lost a lot of weight and looked like he was in incredible shape, he was so quick, but he proved he didnt lose any power when he got the guy against the ropes. One big shot was all it took, one big shot was all he threw, landed square on the button, the guy went out like a light, but Igor tagged him a few more times on the way down for good measure!

Igor looked amazing in that fight. Maybe if he had been at that weight 5 years ago, and Pride hadnt been scared of letting him face Wanderlei, he could have taken it. Now I'm not saying that Pride protected Wanderlei, but Igor vs Wanderlei is a really obvious striker on striker matchup, and would have made for a great main event. I'm just puzzled (and disappointed) that they never made it happen

I think Fujita's KO of Thompson is alot better than the Aleks Knockout just because of how hug e the punch was and seiing JT jaw get crushed. And also the Aleks one wasnt even that good it was just funny because of how intense JT was only to get knockedout a 30 seconds later.

Totally agree, that's my favorite MMA KO ever, from my favorite Stand-up centric MMA fighter. Sadly, Igor will always be the King without a crown of MMA.
