    With last night's Anthony Pettis KO of Benson Henderson, featuring a never before seen (by these eyes anyway) running-trampoline-jump-off-the-cage-spinning-side-kick-to-the-face move, it got me to thinking about some of the best KO's, or stoppages, I've ever seen.

    The above mentioned move was pretty sweet, but I'm not sure how it stacks up to some of these:

    - Spencer Fisher's flying knee to the face of a cocking off Matt Wiman. If you haven't seen it, look it up. It's devastating and hilarious all in one. This might be my all-time favorite KO, but the next one might nudge it...

    - Dan Henderson's crow hop over hand right, followed by the body slam fist hammer to the totally exposed face of the now completely out Michael Bisping. Absolute destruction.

    Those are two of my favorites. What does everyones else have, and not just UFC/WEC either.

    - Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Meldrick Taylor

    - Roy Jones Jr. vs a multitude of lesser fighters

    - Chuck Liddell's KO of Babalu Sobral

    - Gabriel Gonzalez leg kick vs. Mirko Cro Cop

    - Submissions?

    Hagler versus Hearnes. Funniest knockout ever. If you check out around the 1:45 mark, Hagler hits him with a punch and Hearnes does this weird loping run that instantly told you that no one was home.

    Yes, this was a good one. What makes this even crazier is that this never happened to Hearnes.

    Tyson v Spinks

    That was the day I first became frightened of Tyson.

    Trevor Berbick vs. Mike Tyson was my favorite.

    Roy Jones Jr. knocking that dude out with one arm behind his back

    Cro Cop vs. Gonzaga

    Bj Penn vs Caol Uno when Penn just ran out of the ring after he knocked him out in 11 seconds

    Vitor Belfort vs. Wanderley Silva

    Rashad Evans vs. Sean Salmon

    Pete Williams vs. Mark Coleman

    Buster Douglas vs. Mike Tyson. Tyson trying to put in his mouthpeice.





    That kick last night was freakin crazy. My wife just put her hands over her mouth in shock it was so awesome. Gotta give it to Henderson though. Kid did not quit after that.

    Corrales/Castillo 1, both guys just spent, standing in the middle of the ring trading punches at the end Rocky style. Best fight I've ever seen.

    Or once when I was in the bar on 6th street in Austin, there was a UT football player/bouncer there that came striding up when a fight broke out, and he wound up his arm, swung it like a windmill, and just dropped a wrecking ball in the middle of this dudes back that blew him off his feet. The most unreal hit I've ever seen landed. Dude didn't even see it coming and then they just drug him outside. Crazy.

    Nice punch. However, not even close to being a top fight. I saw him at Tasty tacos a few weeks back. Pretty funny.

    I didn't say it was a top fight. It was one hell of a finishing punch though as you rarely ever see a guy wind one up like that and actually land that sucker. He hit the guy so hard I think his feet may have left the ground. :yes:

    Stuff I'll never forget from that:
    1) Prefight inspection, when Tyson's gloves were put on before Spinks' crew got there, so they had him redo them. He showed them his anger by punching a wall. The HBO crew showed the hole, and it was almost man-sized. For some reason, Spinks' people told him about it.

    2) During the national anthem, Tyson spent the whole song in an icy glare towards Spinks. You could actually see the fear in Spinks' eyes, and he looked to be physically shaking at what was about to happen.

    That's the day I also became frightened of him as a fighter. But it made the day he had in Tokyo with Buster Douglas that much better.

    Speaking of which.....I seem to remember some epic kill cams that featured CycloneErik. I suppose that could be considered a fight stoppage:twitcy:

    Holy ****, I remember this one. It didn't have the large pay-per-view audience most of the others mentioned have, but this was one hell of a stoppage. No better way to describe it either.

    I'm not usually a proponent this kind of "non-sanctioned" fighting (if you look back through brocks posts, he sure is though), but this one was awesome. Fist-face-head-floor.
