A knockout is one of the few things on earth that can be described as beautifully brutal. There’s always that daunting impact of a jaw sending a man crashing down to the canvass. In the UFC, knockouts are heralded more than your regular split decision victory. There have been times when UFC fighters have been knocked down the fastest. We shall take a look at a few of them on this list.
