    What's your most favorite combination that you've seen in a mixed-martial arts fight? I'll start off the thread with a few of the more notable examples that get brought up. Nate Marquardt trapping Tyrone Woodley against the fence and battering him with elbows and uppercuts. Donald Cerrone's left jab, right straight to the body, left jab and right head kick on Rick Story. Conor McGregor's left, right, left, right pull counter on Eddie Alvarez. Alexander Gustaffson's spinning elbow that started a combo of hooks and uppercuts, finally leading to an uppercut dropping Glover Teixeria on his butt. The combination doesn't need to have lead to a knockout or finish. Just pick your favorite or some otherwise aesthetically pleasing MMA combinations that you enjoyed.

    Marquardt has some unreal finishing sequences.

    Nice call. Marquardt’s finish on Wilson Gouveia was incredible. That right hand to the body-head double switch kick and then the missed right head kick to a spinning backfist and right hook was poetry in motion. Marquardt could be extremely dangerous when he just let his combinations flow.

    TJ Dillashaw’s finish over Barao in their second fight also deserves a mention. He starts it off with a right leg kick before he misses a left jab-right hand combination. But then he uses the momentum to carry him into the Fitzsimmon’s Shift to land a rear left hook from the southpaw position before landing back in orthodox. Then he just he just unloads with about 20 unanswered punches on Barao who is out on his feet up against the fence. He could have been a little more accurate, but it was still a great finish to watch.
