Khaliev and Barboza were more spectacular. But I went for Thompson because his just came out of nowhere.

Yeah, the Thompson one was thrown from a real awkward position with less of a throw and hope kind of swing, looked opportunistically targeted. Very tight in and with the half momentum of a punch on the same side, not easy at all.

But the first one.............

As you said, from an inclose position Thompson managed to hit Stittgen flush on the off button.

If they create a category for best celebration following a KO Thompson gets my vote there as well.

I loved the Rogers one...think he was also stopped spectacularly himself not long after (against the alternate that lost to Falcao in BFC final)

But it's gotta' be Etim-Barboza.

Thompson wins it for me too although it wasn't the flashiest. I believe it is the only one that could work on opponents that aren't deer in head lights like the first 2 . Might even work on very solid guys. I wonder how often he practices that move its ****ing brilliant on a technical level.

first dude doesn't know to move/block vs a charge
