Jorge Masvidal's incredible five second KO of Ben Askren has been named as the greatest knockout in UFC history.
On Saturday night Joaquin Buckley knocked out Impa Kasanganay with one of the most spectacular shots seen in the promotion's history.

The incredible timing, precision and calculated nature of Masvidal's KO is why Gamebred is top of this list, whilst Conor McGregor's attempt against Jose Aldo is the quickest and best title knockout on the list.
We aren't sure exactly where Buckley's attempt belongs on here but you only have to look at the super slow-mo to see how accurate and impressive his shot was.
