Best Knockouts From Fighters Competing On The UFC 276 Main Card

Best Knockouts From Fighters Competing On The UFC 276 Main Card

Everyone loves a finish in MMA. Okay, let’s be honest; everyone loves a good knockout.

UFC 276 goes down this weekend, and some of the fighters have had some good knockouts or TKO on their resumes.

Here are some of their best knockouts.

Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whittaker

Well, let’s start it off with a bang. At UFC 243, Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker unified the middleweight championship at Marvel Stadium in Australia in front of the biggest UFC crowd of all time. Adesanya knocked out Whittaker in the second round to become the undisputed champion.  Will Adesanya do it again in the UFC 276 main event against Jared Cannonier?

Jared Cannonier vs. Cyril Asker

After losing his UFC debut, Jared Cannonier bounced back in a big way knocking out Cyril Asker violently. ‘The Killa Gorilla’ landed a left hand that dropped Asker and then mauled him with elbows that eventually put him out.

Alexander Volkanovski vs. Chad Mendes

In 2018, Alexander Volkanovski picked up the biggest win of his career when he took out three-time title challenger Chad Mendes. Volkanovski was ranked No. 10 at the time, and at the end of the fight, he had taken Mendes’ No. 3 ranking. At UFC 232, Volkanovski outworked Mendes and eventually finished him via TKO.

Max Holloway vs. Akira Corassani

It was hard not to go with Max Holloway finishing Jose Aldo twice, but his knockout of Akira Corassani is too good to pass up. Holloway was three fights into his incredible 13-win streak when he took on Corassani. Holloway knocked out Corassani in his home country in a little over three minutes – and it was violent.

Sean Strickland vs. Brendan Allen

Sean Strickland only has three finishes in the UFC, but they are good. His lastest TKO came in 2020 against top prospect Brendan Allen. Two weeks prior, he beat up Jack Marshman in his middleweight debut. Strickland dropped Allen with a 1-2 and then jumped on him, causing the referee to jump in.

Alex Pereira vs. Thomas Powell

Okay, I’m cheating with this one. While I should choose Alex Pereira’s UFC debut at UFC 268 when he landed a flying knee, I’m going with the knockout that got him signed to the UFC. At LFA 95, Pereira knocked out Thomas Powell, which was scary because Powell was on the ground for several minutes.

Robbie Lawler vs. Tiki Ghosn

Robbie Lawler’s resume has so many knockouts that you could literally pick any of them to make this list. I’m going back in time to Lawler’s third UFC fight in 2002. He fought Tiki Ghosn at UFC 40 and knocked him out stiff until the referee jumped in to get Lawler off him, and Ghosn woke back up. Young Robbie Lawler was a scary individual.

Bryan Barberena vs. Joe Proctor

After suffering a loss to Colby Covington, Bryan Barberena rebounded by picking up his second TKO finish. At UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs. Lobov, he finished Joe Proctor in his home state of Tennessee. ‘Bam Bam’ hit Proctor with a few Thai knees that dropped him and jumped on him to finish the fight.

Pedro Munhoz vs. Cody Garbrandt

This fight was AWESOME for as long as it lasted. It was one round of chaos that ended up winning Fight of the Night. Pedro Munhoz and Cody Garbrandt kicked off the UFC 235 main card in style. They both swung and kept swinging until Garbrandt went down.

Sean O’Malley vs. Eddie Wineland

To finish off this list, Sean O’Malley knocking out Eddie Wineland is probably the best knockout on here. At UFC 250, O’Malley put Wineland to sleep with one punch and just walked off. He feinted an uppercut and came over the top with a right hand. It truly is beautiful and what made it even cooler was the fact O’Malley said he was going to go viral before the fight. He went viral.
