KO, preferably TKO.

Nothing beats someone getting punched out in this Sport.

It is a bit more complex than that for me. Pure knock outs and/or chokes are the most decisive forms of victory. When you choke someone out, you are literally killing that person. When you knock someone unconscious, you could easily kill that person afterward. That is if no one was there to stop you.

So for me, chokes and unconscious ko's are equal. Followed by being saved by the ref and any other submission. Then there is the corner stopping the fight followed by a decision.

ill take a submission any day. to me in alot of fights particularly in mma there seems alot of luck to getting a ko. not all fights of course but you do see it all the time where guys are almost surprised they have dropped someone. i dont like that and often i feel like i still dont really know who is the better fighter.

Both...Hunt TKO this weekend was nice.

Nothing can compare to the WOW factor a KO can give like Barboza/Etim

And a slick submission is always nice to watch see Barao/McDonald

KO's are usually exciting, except for ones like in the gif.

Gotta be KOs for me, especially a brutal elbow KO. They're such an opportunistic, sudden and heavy kind of KO. They're never scene coming, happen in a flash and send a shudder through your body when watching.

I wonder if you know of a Thai fighter who supposedly wins all of his fights with elbows? A Thai trainer showed me a clip of a fighter who doesn't look like much but seemingly always gets the elbow in and cuts the opponent so the ref stops the match. I don't remember his name.
