Cheick Kongo KO's Pat Barry. Not cause of the knockout but the fact that Kongo woke up after getting abused by Barry.

Some fights that blew my mind:

Leonard Garcia vs. Chan Sung Jung II - I don't think anyone saw Jung subbing Garcia via twister. Too crazy!

Richard Hale vs. Nik Fekete - 6'4 Light Heavyweights pulling off inverted triangles is quite rare where I come from. When I saw Hale choke Fekete out with that triangle, I was shocked. And not just at how long the choke was on after Fekete was unconscious.

Anderson Silva vs. Rich Franklin - Franklin was on fire before he met Anderson Silva. And although Silva's massacre of Leben was an eye opener, I didn't think Silva could hang with Ace! One grotesque maiming later, a new champ was crowned, and a new legacy was born.

Nick Diaz vs. Paul Daley - That fight was insane. People forget Nick has KO power (see Diaz-Lawler), and this fight should remind some people Nick does. I had Nick to win, but I saw him picking Daley apart and getting a sub. That was one of the craziest first rounds ever.

Matt Hamill vs. Mark Munoz - Hamill delivering a head kick KO to Mark Munoz was, to me, about as improbable as Napao's KO over Cro Cop. Great highlight.

That's all I can remember. Lots of other great moments have been cited already, good thread and good lists.

That's true, forgot about type of submission. I picked Diaz Rnd2 Sub over Gomi but never would've even considered that he'd pull off a gogoplata.

Glad I got to see the first Twister in the UFC live though

The usual suspects:
Gonzaga KOing CC
Serra TKOing GSP
Lesnar subbing Carwin

i also never saw Shogun getting outstruck 102-11 in strikes vs Bones

Rashad KO'ing Liddell.

Not many people (outside of gsquat) on this site thought Rashad, the wrestler, stood a chance against Liddell, the striker with magnificent TD defense.

Lights out. Easily one of the sickest KO's I've ever seen.

Griffin subbing Rua

Billy Madison-

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Griffin subbing Rua



Agreed.

And then beating Rampage, too.

Soko KOing Lil Nog and then Arona back to back. Quite shocking.

Ortiz's submission win over Bader



Agreed...will never bet on Bader again...

Also Lauzon over Melvin especially within one minute...

Never was high on Fedor but listening to teh masses...Never thouhgt...

A natural 185 Dan Henderson would faceplant Fedor on the mat...Who thought that..or the triangle by Werdum...

Really? I picked Melvin to win but I was torn. Had I picked Lauzon to win, I would have absolutely picked him to do so by submission.

You're right about how fast it happened but picking him to lose via submission wasn't far fetched at all.

I agree I just threw that in there..I mean the sub....I didnt mean that was a shocker I figured that was the only way to win for him...

Im surprised I read all posts and not a mention of Fedor...
