You may recall that we did the top ten of the best KO's of 2009 at the halfway point in June of this year. We've endured another 6 months of epic battles, title fights, and more. Here's the list from June:
Lyoto Machida vs. Rashad Evans, UFC 98 Jose Aldo vs. Cub Swanson, WEC 41 Matt Hamill vs. Mark Munoz, UFC 96 Brett Rogers vs. Andrei Arlovski, Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields Fedor Emelianenko vs. Andrei Arlovski, Affliction 2 Vitor Belfort vs. Matt Lindland, Affliction 2 Yahir Reyes vs. Estevan Payan, Bellator 6 Ben Henderson vs. Shane Roller, WEC 40 Paulo Thiago vs. Josh Koscheck, UFC 95 Dan Hardy vs. Rory Markham, UFC 95
I have feeling this list will not be the same, so check for the new list after the jump plus a bonus video!
