If you’re finding yourself hankering for some mma betting, why not get clued up on some of the greatest knockouts that have happened previously, and get into the fighting spirit! Be ready to analyse their moves and learn what it takes to be a winner!

UFC stands for the “Ultimate Fighting Championship” and is a form of Mixed Martial Arts, otherwise known as MMA, where a series of fights take place during what fans know as fight nights. It is quite similar to boxing in its rituals – bringing together the best fighters and then having them compete at different weights, in front of an eager crowd that is begging for blood. The organisation began in 1993, and has revolutionised the fight business, standing today as a premium global sports brand, media content company and the largest Pay-Per-View event provider in the world.

The UFC has been around for 17 years now, and throughout the years, it has provided us with many excruciating knockouts. Keep reading and prepare to wince as we take a look back at the most brutal knockouts in UFC history.

Silva Vs. Belfort

At UFC 126, one of the more recent knockouts on the list, we saw Brazilian-American Anderson Silva launch a ferocious front kick into fellow Brazilian Vitor Belfort’s poor face, defending his previously held grand title. The crowd cheered as Belfort fell to the floor, unable to recover from the tremendous blow, with Silva landing a couple more punches for good measure. Show off!

Silva Vs. Jardine

Wanderlei Silva went up against the now actor Keith Jardine at UFC 84 in 2008. Within 36 seconds of dancing around the ring, Silva landed a relentless series of tight-fisted punches to Jardine’s face, disarming his opponent completely. Jardine fell to the floor and the rest was history. This impressive knockout earned Wanderlei the “Knockout of the Night” award, as well as “Knockout of the Year” – understandably so!

Jackson VS. SIlva

Following on from his victory, Wanderlei Silva went on to receive a stark wake-up call from America’s own Quinton Ramone “Rampage” Jackson. Rampage Jackson, as he is more commonly known, came to UFC 92 with an untameable fire in his belly, having been previously knocked out twice by none other than Silva himself. Jackson pushed forward in the pair’s third fight, slamming Silva several times in the jaw before the Brazil native finally fell back in defeat. Jackson continued to land punches until he was finally pulled away, and declared the winner.

Marquardt Vs. Maia

Nate Marquardt truly showed the audience how it should be done when he launched a winning attack on Demian Maia in UFC 102. Maia approached his opponent and attempted to land his first hit with some kind of jumping strike; however, it appeared that Marquardt wasn’t going to have a single second of it as he intercepted his opponent before Maia’s foot had barely left the ground. He slammed the older fighter with a single blow to the face – Maia falling back instantly and rolling onto his back. Marquardt stood over him and looked ready to go in for the kill, but he decided to show mercy, stepping away and enjoying the moment as a champion.

Harris Vs. Branch

The final knockout we wish to visit is from UFC 116, where Gerald Harris took out David Branch in a rather athletic knockout. Brach attempted to take the upper hand by jumping up and wrapping his limbs around Harris, trying to pull guard and make his opponent succumb to a vulnerable position. However, Harris proved to be wise to this, and pushed Branch’s head away from him, slamming the other fighter down onto the canvas. Branch’s head bounced off the floor, knocking him out cold. Harris went on to win “Knockout of the Night” for this feat, for the second time in three fights.

He started his football career when he played for Michigan. But he soon landed with the Patriots, but his selection was a six-round selection. He did not get much chance to prove himself till Drew Bledsoe got injured. Then Tom Brady took over and proved his talent.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick worked as a team and made the Patriots a modern dynasty. He played 20 years in Foxboro. Tom Brady played as a first-class quarterback and won 219 of his 285 regular season appearances; he also claimed six Lombardi Trophies and three MVP awards. He claimed the title of one of the best quarterbacks of the game.

But after 20 years of association, he decided to leave the team and signed a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is about to start a new chapter of his career in Florida. And the fans of Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the Bucs Forum are super elated with this fact.

But Tom Brady, who is considered one of the finest in the games, has to start from scratch. However, his new teammates are teaching him new methods. They are having fun learning him the verbiage because he is a down to earth guy and a good teammate.
