Thought it was about time we got a thread dedicated to KO's. 

I remember a time when KO's in MMA in particular were fairly sacred. Back before Youtube and Twitter, the old UFC Greatest Knockouts DVD's were a necessity for fans. I remember sticking those things on at people houses and everyone gathering to watch the hostilities. These days we get KO of the year type shit every single week from the most random places, we are bombarded with it. So i thought why not set up a thread to share some.

Any knockouts, any sport, get em in...

I'll open it with the big boys. In the immortal words of Gorilla Monsoon:

"There goes the tree"

there's 2 MMA knockouts that seemed to resonate with everyone the first time they saw it. One was that Baroni KO, the other was Belfort KO'ing Wanderlei. They were like two ultimate gateway knockouts for new fans back in the day.

It made Belfort though, those first few Vitor wins in the UFC set him up for life. Looking back at his record, Belfort wouldn't score another KO win for close to five years which is pretty nuts.

He ended with one of the best highlight reels in the sport though.
