Must-See: The Best Finishes of 2009 (So Far)

(Props: Caposa3 via "CRE" on the UG)

Less than three full months into 2009, and we’ve already seen some of the most creative submissions and brutal KOs in recent memory; this new highlight comp collects the best of them. Between the slo-mo footage and understated, ambient soundtrack, moments like Demian Maia‘s triangle choke of Chael Sonnen (1:17-1:47) and Nate Marquardt‘s devastation of Wilson Gouveia (3:46-4:02) seem even more epic. Enjoy.

Great video. F-in epic indeed. If I was GSP I would have the the last 30 seconds looped just playing constantly on a TV in the house.

im sick of seeing shoguns knockout out of mark coleman on highlight reels, sure its cool looking but it gives the illusion that he was awesome that night. Coleman could have been first in the first round but it took rua 3 rounds of panting to do it, shoguns washed up its sad but true

Unless the back of your head starts where your cheek meets your ear, I don't see anyone getting hit in the back of the head.

My favorite moment of 09 so far was Page taking time off with his asian girls on an island, rehabbing his nagging injuries. JUICE

That video is sick, but you can clearly see the globs of Vaseline flying off of GSP's body while BJ was sinking in that submission.

Oh, or was that just BJ's head getting bludgeoned.

Nice video, but the music kinda made it like wasting a boob job on your grandma.

Thought the song sounded like it was from Gladiator, except for the mixed vocal part in the middle, which would have been appropriate if you ask the UFC, looking at their openings. The pacing was one well. I felt like I was watching Planet Earth or something. Only cooler.

He's not the best p4p fighter in the world.

I love this site, both for the content and quality of the (frequently hilarious) writing, but saying the last three months have produced some of the most creative submissions and brutal KOs in recent memory is kind of like saying some of the most memorable tapouts induced by submission holds and some of the most amazing KOs precipitated by strikes. They're the most creative and brutal in recent memory possibly because "recent" memory is largely dominated by the "recent" past, wouldn't you say?

Sorry for being a bitch.

No Brock Lesnar pounding on Coture's head like a basketeball

I agree with AngryD, the video should be edited to include BJ's pussy complaints.
AngryD- March 15, 2009 at 10:21 am
^ *of constructing formal complaints*
AngryD- March 15, 2009 at 10:20 am
no, the best finish of the year has been bj penn's dignity being submitted by hours constructing formal complaints.
