Loyal readers of this site know how much we love video highlights and lists of things, so it should be no surprise that we really enjoyed the latest effort from KingAtRock (who you might remember from such videos as this one or that one). So yeah, we probably would have posted this regardless, but it sure didn’t hurt that he gave us a little shout-out at the end. Let this be a lesson to the rest of you: never underestimate the power of pandering to our collective ego.
On the real though, this is a pretty solid list of upsets. It does seem a little strange, considering what we know about each man’s career trajectory, to think of Rashad Evans’ brain cell-destroying knockout of Chuck Liddell as an upset. At the time it was a shocker, sure, but now it seems like we probably should have seen it coming. Who knows, maybe someday we’ll be saying the same thing about Thales Leites’ dramatic victory via flying triangle choke over Anderson Silva. Probably not, though.
