Preparing for Saturday night’s UFC 208 pay-per-view (PPV) event in Brooklyn, N.Y., UFC released its “Top 8 Finishes” video highlighting the top finishes of they key main card fighters.
What’s absent from the list, however, is Holly Holm’s devastating head kick knockout over former UFC women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. And since Holm, who is headlining the PPV event, doesn’t have another finish inside the Octagon, she was left out completely. Everyone else, including her opponent Germain de Randamie, were given their time in the spotlight.
We’ll just have to wonder why one of the best, and most shocking, knockouts in the history of MMA was completely ignored. Considering that Rousey has very influential friends in very high places, probably don’t have to think far.
Here’s who did make the list:
8. Dusin Poirier knocks out Bobby Green at UFC 199.
7. Tim Boetsch knocks out Brad Tavares at UFC Fight Night 47.
6. Germain de Randamie knocks out Anna Elmose at UFC Fight Night 87.
5. Derek Brunson knocks out Uriah Hall at UFC Fight Night 94.
4. Jim Miller chokes out Melvin Guillard at UFC On FX 1.
3. Ronald Souza knocks out Yushin Okami at UFC Fight Night 28.
2. Glover Teixeira knocks out Rashad Evans at UFC on FOX 19.
1. Anderson Silva knocks out Rich Franklin at UFC 64
