Joe Rogan’s Top 8 Heavyweight Knockouts

With four Top 10 heavyweights on tap, as well as another bout featuring two of the division’s highly-touted players, it’s clear the lineup for UFC 166 is as dreamy as it gets for fans of the sport’s big boys. Specifically, champion Cain Velasquez is scheduled to defend his title against Junior dos Santos at the show, while Roy Nelson-Daniel Cormier and Shawn Jordan-Gabriel Gonzaga will also take to the Octagon in hopes of entertaining fans and exiting the effort victorious. With the event less than a week away, longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan recently gave his thoughts on the best knockouts in the company’s history and not surprisingly most of the aforementioned heavyweights made the cut based on past performances including one holding the list’s top spot.

    Kongo’s KO over Barry
    Timmmay’s over AA and McGee
    JDS KO over Werdum
    Nelson’s KO over Schaub

    Were all better/more important than most of the ones mentioned. But I guess Rogan has to promote the current guys so……

  • AlphaOmega says:

    The bigfoot/overeem KO was pretty

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Tank Abbot vs John Matua, Steve Blackman ( Nelmark for non WWE fans )
    Mir vs Simms- bad fight but great ko at the end.
    Fedor va Arlovsky
    Ruas vs Varlens
    Belfort vs Abbot
    Randleman vs Cro Cop

  • hindsightufuk says:

    just popped by to say Pedro vs Barnett. great round, great KO
    my favorite HW KO

  • darth_irritable says:

    Randleman Cro-cop 1 – hell yeah. For Shock value alone

  • stone says:

    Gonzaga/Cro-Cop is the best KO…. The way CroCop’s knee bent to hell was nasty! Plus the fact that CroCop got “CroCopped”. I thought CroCop was dead

  • THEGUNNER says:

    Travis brown does not belong here unless its a come back or an upset. Landing 1 out of 10 sloppy front kicks is not a top ko.

  • Brendhan Conlan says:

    Yeah, seems as though Rogan only used his short term memory on the list.

  • raker says:

    It seems that whether it’s HOF or a best-of list like this, pre-Zuffa UFC almost never existed. That beginning started it all off and although there have been rule changes, those fighters deserve respect as trail blazers and the recognition for some great fights. If there’s ever a top 5 biggest beatdowns Fred Ettish better be on that list..:)

  • raker says:

    With that in mind, I’d consider Maurice Smiths KO of Conan Silveira and Pete Williams KO of Mark Coleman as some if the top HW KO’s of all time.

  • MCM says:

    Agree with the Williams/Coleman KO, that would easily be in my top 3 and could arguably be #1. They still show the Coleman KO on all the highlight reels too, but like I said, they gotta promote the new guys so we get Travis Browne instead.
