The 15 Greatest Knockouts in ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ History

Season 13 – Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Edwards

Speaking of TUF competitors who made mincemeat out of their opponents, Tony Ferguson had perhaps the most dominant run of any winner in the show’s history, knocking out all four of his opponents en route to the coveted glass plaque. But none were more impressive than his preliminary match upkick KO of Justin Edwards, because honestly, how often do you see an upkick KO? It remains Renzo Gracie’s greatest highlight, and the same goes for Ferguson. His knockout of Ramsey Nijem at the TUF 13 Finale may have earned him the gold glass, but this kick earned him the CagePotato glory, which is arguably a greater achievement. Arguably.

Season 12 – Cody McKenzie vs. Marc Stevens

We know, we know. This was not a knockout. In fact, in all of season 12, there were only three knockouts. And of those three knockouts, there was only one legitimate KO, and believe it or not, it was the first fight of the season–Marc Stevens’ 13 second preliminary fight trouncing of T.J. O’Brien. The other two (T)KO victories came courtesy of body shot specialist Nam Phan, over Mike Budnik and Cody McKenzie, and in neither case was the victim actually separated from their consciousness.

But it was Cody McKenzie’s 16 second technical submission victory over Marc Stevens that tops them all, and we don’t care if it defies the laws set forth by the title of this article. Not to over exaggerate, but it was easily the greatest moment in TUF history, bar none. The twelfth season of The Ultimate Fighter served as little more than a highlight reel for Josh Koscheck’s douchebaggery and aggressive homosexuality, and the only man to continually shut down Koscheck’s empty threats was Alaskan guillotine specialist Cody McKenzie. Needless to say, when McKenzie was matched up against Stevens, a former training partner of Koscheck, shit got real. Koscheck talked trash, Stevens talked even more trash, and McKenzie quietly put him to sleep with his patented “McKenzietine” in less time than it takes the average person to complete a yawn. Watching our boy Fraggle angrily applying lip balm was more satisfying then any of the true knockouts from TUF 12, and probably the most legit  ___out of the season.

Season 11 – Brad Tavares vs. Jordan Smith

Much like season 12, season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter did not have many knockouts to write home about. That said, the knee/straight right combo that Brad Tavares unleashed on Jordan Smith in their preliminary matchup was a thing of beauty. Smith crashed to the canvas like a narcoleptic goat just 37 seconds into the fight, and Tavares secured a spot in the house. He would ride that momentum all the way to the semifinals, where he would be defeated by eventual season winner Court McGee. Despite the setback, he would still manage to plaster Phil Baroni out of the UFC at UFC 125, so that’s some consolation, right? RIGHT?!

Best TUF KO not on the list - Tom Lawler vs Dave Kaplan in the bathroom.

TK's heart? Gomi's footwork? Chuck's thumbs? "El Indestructo" has all the makings of a Pride-is-so-much-better-than-the-UFC argument on the UG from circa 2003-2004. Seems like the Lesnar part was added in later to help "El Indestructo" evolve with the sport.

Nevermind, I am a stupid asshole. Totally thought the "perfect fighter" and greatest knockouts were two separate articles.. that's what I get for getting 4 hours sleep and posting before my coffee.
ArmFarmer- March 29, 2012 at 6:33 am
@half the posters: This isn't the article you are looking for.. move along.

I am surprised Bredan Schwab didnt recieve permanant injury after Nelsons head bouncing second slam.
Pete sells Knockout was just insane and should be number one IMO.
Mackenzitine should be number two.

Shogun's extremely limited gas tank? It doesn't matter how perfect the fighter is when he'll be dying by the time he reaches the cage.
Bill-BJJ- March 29, 2012 at 2:56 am
Er guys?

Do we really want a convicted rapists BALLS to be part of our "perfect fighter"?

I know he took a lot of shots to them but they've been part to some pretty horrific shit.

Should have had Wanderlei's eyebrows.

Why they hell do they have "Fedor's New Bionic Hand" on that picture.. it should be Dan Henderson's H-Bomb and everyone knows it.

as hawt as Lylith Lavey dude, good god what a trashy queen with venomous tail, like to see that blonde skank bitch fucking duke it out with naughtie Miss dana Marie on an ice cream fucking tongue of mine, I'll teach those bitch real love if I have to gun em in the ass for em to believe me, with love & my own personal signature
MKO- March 28, 2012 at 6:44 pm
No way Matt Riddle shouldn't have been number one. You could have not shown it, just played the sound to it and it would easily be number one.
"Rampage, what happened? Was it training?"
DangadaDang- March 28, 2012 at 7:28 pm
The KO's were ranked according to season. Otherwise, you bet your ass that would be number one.
FightZen- March 28, 2012 at 4:00 pm
"It took exactly twenty seconds for Swick to land nearly 300,000 punches" So true... can't wait for his return. Some day...
bootystar- March 28, 2012 at 8:41 pm
fucking only 300K, took leonidas 300 to skank that king, fucking hilarious bro, haha, bet you I could take 2 to knock up Renee G, but you're sherhonda could smooth talk me out of more than two, prolly get a home run
ZombieRock- March 28, 2012 at 3:33 pm
Gomi uses foot work? I thought he just put his head down and plodded forward. Frankie Edgar's footwork would have made sense.

I was just about to make this comment. Totally absurd. Obviously made by someone trying to hold onto a pride myth.
mDino- March 28, 2012 at 3:24 pm
If you bring this goron zoras eyedrops than he will forge you a giant sword
DangadaDang- March 28, 2012 at 4:01 pm
I wish I could like that a million times more. Good showing, mDino.
RwilsonR- March 29, 2012 at 7:17 am
Nicely played, mDino!
DangadaDang- March 28, 2012 at 2:56 pm
I would just like to comment that 'El Indestructo' bares a striking resemblance to Gabriel Gonzaga. At least in the face.
bootystar- March 28, 2012 at 8:47 pm
