In honor of UFC 160 on Saturday, we have decided to divulge some of the greatest knockouts to have ever gone down in the octagon. But these aren’t just any kind of knockouts. I’m talking about the gut-wrenching, high-flying and reckless beat downs that we see every time we watch a UFC event.

From spinning heel kicks to some good old-fashioned ground and pound, one thing is for certain every time you tune in — someone is getting their sh*t pushed in.

And as heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez prepares to defend his title against Antonio Silva, we can only hope for the best. And by best we mean worst. You see, unlike boxing there are actually spectacular finishes in MMA.

You won’t see two guys dancing around each other for an hour, but instead a few minutes of high-intensity, no holds bar fighting. Need a reminder? Check out the 15 greatest knockouts in UFC history.
