Video Roundup: The Eight Nastiest Walk-Off Knockouts in MMA History

Sometimes a fighter connects with his opponent so perfectly that he can confidently peace out to collect his check before the ref even stops the fight. It’s called a walk-off knockout, and it’s what all other knockouts aspire to be. Here, presented with limited commentary, are our favorites.

#8: Brad Kohler vs. Steve Judson @ UFC 22 (9/24/99)

#7: James Irvin vs. Terry Martin @ UFC 54 (8/20/05)
See also: Irvin vs. Ramirez, which would have been a walk-off if Yamasaki had his shit together.

#6: Charles Bennett vs. Yoshiro Maeda @ PRIDE Bushido 7 (5/22/05)
More of a “jump in the air, then fly directly out of the ring” knockout, but close enough.

#5: Anderson Silva vs. Tony Fryklund @ Cage Rage 16 (4/22/06)

#4: Spencer Fisher vs. Matt Wiman @ UFC 60 (5/27/06)
Similar to Irvin/Martin, but Fisher goes ass-over-teakettle with the force of his flying knee.

#3: Rory Markham vs. Brodie Farber @ UFC Silva vs. Irvin (7/19/08)
One of the nastiest head-kick KOs this side of Mirko Cro Cop. The fact that Markham was getting lit up at the time yet had the self-control to walk away after starching Farber is what makes this one truly legendary.

#2: Joachim Hansen vs. Mazakazu Imanari @ PRIDE Bushido 8 (7/17/05)
Hansen is one of the all-time kings of the walk-off. If you scroll back a bit to 3:32-ish, you’ll see him do something nearly identical to Caol Uno.

#1: Wanderlei Silva vs. Quinton Jackson @ PRIDE 28 (10/31/04)
One of the greatest “did he died?” moments in MMA history, right up there with Abbott/Nelmark. For a higher-quality (though unfortunately unembeddable) version, click here.

@LOKI - Tim Boetsch vs David Heath is one of my favorite fights, but that wasn't a walk-off.

I like Fedor causing Arlovski to fall out of the sky like a sack of potatos.

True Story:

In the late 90's, I trained Jiu-Jitsu at a place Steve Judson also trained at. Mind you, this was when the sport of MMA had just kinda became a sport. Meaning, no more Joe Sans to the package.
I actually stopped watching the UFC for about 5 years because I thought adding rules ruined it. I started in the Royce days. He never would have won the Kimo fight if hair pulling was illegal. Being that, at the time, I weighed 135lbs at 5'9", I thought the little guy no longer stood a chance. Then I learned they added weight classes. Yes, Spike TV did probably save the UFC. I started when the s#*t was on VHS, then decided I was thinking about choking people in a technical fashion too much and blah......

Ok, background aside and back to Mr. Judson. Remaining vague on purpose, Judson was a notorious Nazi skinhead before his tattoo cover ups and love for foreign fighting arts developed by people of a darker skin tone. The day I walked into training, I almost shit. I remembered him from around. I tried to explain to my Brazilian teacher that this huge fucking guy was a racist scumbag who would probably use his new found grappling techniques to bully and hurt innocent people, but I think he just saw a big guy he could train to be a bad ass. Judson is a physical specimen.

So, there was another person at the school who was a very mean, mean man from another foreign land we would probably be at war with had McCain become president. That man, who outweighed me by about 40pds. of muscle, would get me in the knee on chest position and never let go. Just punish me and if I tapped from pain would say, "No tap. That's not a submission.", and continue to drill his knee into my chest without ever trying to advance. Mind you, this is really pre internet and I was a newbie, never taught the defense. I was basically being raped, without the books and internet of today to assist me in defense. The only thing I had back then was a VHS of the 98' Brazilian finals. Learned a lot from it though.

Back to my story. I basically had to go to the doctor because I felt my sternum popping from the meanness from the mean man. Dr. told me it was a cartilage thing and to this day, if I move a certain way, sometimes I feel a little pop. Not a good little pop either.

After I was told I could not tap, I endured quite a lot of pain under this mean man's knee. He was really mean. Anyway, my little 135pd. ass took it like a man and just basically, you now, kinda cried while it happened. Just kidding, but my eyes did water up one time from squinting so hard from the pain.

Anyhoo, one training session Mr. Judson came and I witnessed something special. The mean man placed his knee on Judson's chest with precision, he had a lot of practice on me, and the second he touched it, Judson couldn't take it. He whined, "I told you not to do that to me!" The mean man laughed. I couldn't believe it. This humongous man couldn't take what I endured countless times for literally a second. He damn near started to really cry. He threw a baby fit! The mean man told him it was Jiu-Jitsu and legal, and Judson said he didn't care, that he couldn't do that to him.

Point of story, when I saw a Youtube video of Judson getting knocked out after I returned back to watching MMA, it didn't surprise me at all. When I saw that in training, I thought, "Son of a bitch. What a big pussy that could kick my little ass." Wish I was his size, or Marcelo Garcia so I could of put the mean man knee on his ass. I f'n hate Nazi skinheads.

Side note: He brought a big steroid buddy with bad Nazi cover up tats, meaning, you could still see the swastikas, to training one time. The guy outweighed me by over 100 pounds. I triangled his skinhead ass and literally made him puke on the mat. Our teacher made him clean it up and I've never had someone that size treat me like I'm their size. God I love Jiu-Jitsu and also loved that he got KO'd like that. It's called Karma. I believe he also got dueced in his only other UFC fight in a similar and big Pussy kind of way. And I ain't talkin' about the Sopranos.

Sorry to be that guy but rashad "ran towards" chuck not walked away dude. Thats the crucial element, the care free stroll. I think you are confusing this list with the "got really knocked out list"

Btw cp well done. Great idea/execution.
Biffmiester- November 22, 2010 at 9:07 pm
Agreed with Bill Jackson, exactly what I thought when the article was written. Damn, Sergio put Paulie on his ass. Even if ya bash boxing as much as I do, you still gotta see the vicious KO from Saturday.

I'll add in a couple that weren't named:

Rashad Evans v. Chuck Liddell
Rashad Evans v. Sean Salmon
(Would type in Rashad doing the Stanky Leg vs. Machida also but it wasn't exactly 'singularly' devastating like these are; just a barrage of brutality)

Good choices though, fellas. Commenters and authors alike.

EDIT: Okay, scratch off Salmon. I wouldn't exactly call those two extra right hands after the head kick "walking-off" even if he was KO'd on the way down.
Cock Chestner- November 22, 2010 at 7:00 pm
it was already mentioned but the "he shook his head no and fisher said yes, my son" was a such a great line. why cant goldie hit us with zingers like that more often? classic.
Sudos KFC- November 22, 2010 at 6:57 pm
Yeah the anderson ko was a reverse lead elbow he saw in a tony jaa movie lol. He thought it could work, his coaches wouldnt let him practice it saying it was impractical and dangerous (it is lol) so at night he had his wife stand on their couch with a pillow in her hand and he threw them over and over lol. Crazy. At a seminar tony had some funny things to say about it. Tony is also a complete animal btw. Embarrasingly good. Like put you in your place good, just watching him drill.
tallkitchenbags- November 22, 2010 at 6:49 pm
i never tire of seeing rampage absorb those knees. eat iup bitch
tallkitchenbags- November 22, 2010 at 6:37 pm
a few of those boys look like they were juicing pretty hard. kohler especially, but also irvin.

and how effing great is the expression on markham's face after he damn near takes farber's head off? epic.
haffisonm- November 22, 2010 at 6:20 pm
how is hendo vs bisping a 'walk off'?
hendo followed him to the mat.
JDubba42047- November 22, 2010 at 6:10 pm
Hendo vs Bisping ... bisping was out for three minutes!
Condit vs Hardy I wanted Hardy to win but Condit turned him to stone.
Jugger- November 22, 2010 at 6:05 pm
As soon as I saw the title I thought "Hansen vs. Imanari". Wandy vs. 'Page is a good choice for #1.

Hornbuckle vs. Gono was awesome, especially after Dan just stood in the center of the ring looking like he was about to burst out in tears.
haffisonm- November 22, 2010 at 5:13 pm
this list is missing franklin vs. quarry...
and more importantly hornbuckle vs gono
indianlarry- November 22, 2010 at 4:07 pm
What about Fedor vs. Brett Rogers, probably the best walk off knockout i've ever seen, i'm surprised Rogers still has a jaw after that punch
Bill Jackson- November 22, 2010 at 3:37 pm
Something tells me this list was inspired by Sergio Martinez's defense of the middleweight championship this weekend against Paul Williams. One of the greatest knockouts I have ever seen, and if you have HBO, you should catch the replay.
imabigfan- November 22, 2010 at 3:30 pm

bang up job there, dude.
imabigfan- November 22, 2010 at 3:29 pm
that hellboy video is tits. that is/was a bad man. check out some- damn where around 6:50 and a couple other points i'm too damn lazy to immediately find for hanson to warn the ref that he's about to break a dude's arm. and then damn near do it. i feel i could say damn one more time. shucks.
just some dong- November 22, 2010 at 3:16 pm
Jose Aldo/Cub Swanson
Gener- November 22, 2010 at 3:13 pm
Wand Vs. Sak 3

Fedor Vs. Arlovski

Liddell Vs. Mezger

Honorable Mention: Herring Vs. Nakao? Hope Heath got paid. This was technically sexual assault.

Crusader86- November 22, 2010 at 3:05 pm
Pretty sure it's an elbow.
Crusader86- November 22, 2010 at 3:03 pm
Ah I remember watching that Rory Markham one, nearly crapped my pants. That's such a great head kick, especially after getting pummeled like he did.
MorningwoodII- November 22, 2010 at 2:40 pm
I couldn't tell if the Anderson Silva KO was a back fist or an elbow. who knows?
