UFC Fastest Knockouts (official)


Conor McGregor KO José Aldo

UFC 194 (December 13, 2015)

Conor Mcgregor KO Jose Aldo
Conor McGreogor KO Jose Aldo – UFC 194

With 18 knockouts in three different weight divisions, Conor McGregor is no stranger to knockout victories.


However, if you ask the Irishman about his favourite UFC fastest knockouts, he must pick the time when he made UFC history by knocking out José Aldo within 13 seconds.

Mcgregor Ko Aldo


Anderson Silva KO Rich Franklin

UFC Fastest Knockout – UFC 64 (October 14, 2006)

UFC fastest Knockouts
Anderson Silva Vs. Rich Franklin

Rich Franklin will go down as a legend in UFC middleweight history. But, he will have a hard time forgetting the Anderson Silva size blemish in his otherwise illustrious career.


The Brazilian fighter knocked out Franklin twice, and this was the first time he did so.

Anderson Silva KO Rich Franklin



Matt Serra KO Georges St-Pierre

UFC Fastest Knockout – UFC 69 (April 7, 2007)

UFC Fastest Knockouts
Matt Serra Win Over Georges St-Pierre


We all love a good underdog story, don’t we? Matt Serra’s surprising win to claim the welterweight title from Georges St-Pierre was one of the biggest UFC upsets ever.


Matt ”The Terror” Serra terrorized St-Pierre with a shower of strong punches and condemned him to an unlikely defeat.



Gary Goodridge KO Paul Herrera

UFC 8 February 16, 1996. Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum, Bayamón, Puerto Rico.

The first UFC fight should be a bit difficult for any fighter. But, for Gary Goodridge, it was a walk in the park.


The “Big Daddy” barely had the time to feel the nerves as he elbowed his opponent and knocked him out. It took him only 13 seconds!


BJ Penn KO Caol Uno

UFC 41 (February 28, 2003. Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey)

Fresh off of a win in the UFC lightweight division, BJ Penn had no reason to feel short of confidence before confronting Caol Uno.


But, the Hawaiian fighter couldn’t have foreseen knocking out his opponent in 11 seconds.


Penn demolished Uno with a series of swift punches and sealed the tie.


Rashad Evans Vs Chuck Liddell

UFC 88 (September 6, 2008. Phillips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia)

Rashad Evens vs Chuck Liddell
Brutal Knock Out – Evans on Liddell

This fight marked the beginning of a 3-bout losing streak for Chuck Liddell.


After an even first round fight, Rashad Evans exploited Liddell’s momentary lapse in concentration and almost knocked him to oblivion with a swift combo of a left and a right jab.



Chuck Liddell KO Tito Ortiz

UFC 47 (April 2, 2004. Mandalay Bay Events Center, Las Vegas, Nevada)


The bad blood between Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddle gave birth to arguably the most intense rivalry on the octagon to date.


The first of the duo’s three UFC meetings went Liddle’s way.


Ortiz had no answer to Liddle’s assault of uppercuts and jabs and ultimately succumbed to a 2nd round knockout.



Anderson Silva KO Vitor Belfort

UFC 126 (February 5, 2011. Mandalay Bay Events Center, Las Vegas, Nevada)


Vitor Belfort had returned to the UFC for the third time in his career. But, the Brazilian failed to commemorate the occasion with a win.


His opponent Anderson Silva was coming off of an extended injury layoff. But, Silva managed to flatten Belfort with an excellent front kick.


Tank Abbott KO John Matua

UFC 6 (July 14, 1995. Casper Events Center, Casper, Wyoming)


John Matua learned the hard way that teaching martial arts doesn’t necessarily give you a competitive edge in MMA.


The martial arts instructor was knocked unconscious by Tank Abbott with a single punch. The Californian needed only 18 seconds to settle the bout.


Phil Baroni KO Dave Menne

UFC 39 (September 27, 2002. Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Connecticut)


Phil Baroni made easy work of Dave Menne when the duo had met at UFC 39. After the stopwatch hit 18 seconds, the New Yorker pushed Manne to the wall of the cage.


Afterwards, he launched an array of punches and left Menne knocked out at a corner of the octagon.


Chris Weidman vs Anderson Silva 1

UFC 168 (December 29, 2013. MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada)

The UFC 168 main event had paired Anderson Silva, a fighter who boasted a 16-0 record at that time, with Chris Weidman.

The American also had a clean slate in his 9 match UFC career back then.

In the end, it was Anderson, who tasted defeat as Weidman’s uppercut got the better of him.

Scott Smith KO Pete Sell

UFC The Ultimate Fighter Season 4 Finale (November 11, 2006. Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada)


The season 4 finale of The Ultimate Fighter ended in a surprising twist. After sustaining a hit on the body, Scott Smith was struggling in pain.


Pete Sell was approaching him furiously to finish the job. But, Sell was met with an unexpected punch from Smith, which knocked him out.


Gabriel Gonzaga KO Mirko Cro Cop

UFC 70 (April 21, 2007. Manchester Evening News Arena, Manchester, UK)

Head kicks were Mirko Cro Cop’s go-to move in the octagon. In UFC 70, however, the Croatian got a taste of his own medicine.

Gabriel Gonzaga executed one of the most brutal head kicks we have ever seen in combative sports to claim victory over Cro Cop.


Holly Holm vs Ronda Rousey

UFC 193 (November 15, 2015. Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, Australia)

Up to this point, Ronda Rousey had been an indomitable presence in the UFC arena.

Holly Holm made the best use of her boxing expertise to make life difficult for Rousey.

But to finish the bout off, Holm took a page out of Rousey’s book and sent her airborne with a ferocious kick.


Dan Henderson KO Michael Bisping

UFC 100 (July 11, 2009. Mandalay Bay Events Center, Las Vegas, Nevada)

Building up to this fight, Michael Bisping tried to rile up Dan Henderson with public insults.

Nonetheless, most of his trash talk went unanswered. Henderson chose to do his talking on the octagon and knocked out the English fighter with an incredible blow in the 2nd round.


Chuck Liddell KO Randy Couture

UFC 52 (April 16, 2005. MGM Grand Garden Arena)

With his eye set on winning back the light heavyweight belt, Chuck Liddle took the octagon to fight Randy Couture.


Liddle did manage to avenge his 2003 defeat with a right-hand uppercut and reclaim the title.

He repeated the feat in UFC 57, but Liddle’s first knockout of Couture remains our favourite.


Final Say

Since the competition’s inception in 1993, we have had the opportunity to witness a good deal of knockouts.

It is not a simple challenge to isolate 16 knockout events as the best UFC knockouts of all time, but we wanted to make an attempt anyway.
