Best UFC knockouts In 2008
Jeremy stephens vs rafael dos anjos
This was a lightweight battle that i was only half watching until bang jeremy stephens launches the biggest uppercut i have ever seen.He was struggling slightly against rafael who is a seasoned jiu jitsu practitioner,but then he threw this uppercut from down by his knee and it landed flush on the side of rafael jaw, to his credit he managed to stand up and half recover but stephens was the quicker man and pounced and finished him off with some strikes.
Wanderlei Silva vs Kieth Jardine
Wanderlie destroyed Keith Jardin in 37 seconds and left everybody in no doubt that he is still one of the most dangerous fighters on the planet.He came out swinging and caught Kieth and left him staring at the lights for a good 5mins,He was still shaky as he left the octagon several mins later.
Quinton Jackson vs Wanderlei Silva 3
When this bout was organised i was very excited as Wanderlei had destroyed Quinton twice and was looking for a third scalp....Not to be Rampage had other ideas and after covering silvas vicious blows he threw a picture perfect left hook and Silva was unconcious before he hit the floor.Nice one Rampage
James Irvin vs Houston Alexander
This was a fight i was very much looking forward too as Houston Alexander had been dropping apponants left right and centre,he was as they put it a wrecking machine, but that all changed when he met Irvin,The two had been exchanging verbals and had both decided to come out and bang,and they did with Irvin landing a superman punch and knocking out Alexander in 8 seconds.WOW
Chuck Lidell vs Rashad Evans
All credit to Rashad as he was up against an mma legend but he fought a beautiful fight,he was quick evasive and threw punches in bunches all of which frustrated the Iceman untill in the second round he came out reckless and as he went to throw an uppercut Rashad was quicker and caught him with the icemans trademark a huge overhand right which landed flush and shocked the world by putting Liddell on his back for more than 5mins,Rashad went on to beat Forrest griffin and become new light heavyweight champ.
