The 50 Greatest MMA Knockouts Of All Time Have Been Named And Ranked

And now fans over at Tapology have named Henderson's KO victory over Bisping at the top of the pile.

One of the most surprising placements was Jorge Masvidal's sensational knockout victory over Ben Askren at UFC 239 in 2019, which ranked at No 30 over at Tapology.

Masvidal, 35, stunned the MMA world when he recorded the fastest knockout in UFC history (five seconds) with a flying knee strike on Askren.
