Name one thing in pro MMA more exciting than a flying-knee knockout like the one we saw from Chris Beal. Don't give me gogoplata or calf slicer. Don't lean back in your leather chair, chickory in hand, and proclaim that "five frenetic rounds of only the most elite cardiovascular athletes working feverishly but methodically to break the will of the other man using only the four barest limbs what the lord'st given'st him" is the top thing, either.

Josh Samman scored one of the knockouts of the year on the UFC 181 prelims. One of the most recent Ultimate Fighter winners got the job done on the UFC 181 prelims. The other is probably still trying to figure out what state he's in. Corey Anderson, who emerged as the TUF 19 light heavyweight winner, faced late-replacement Justin Jones in the middle of the prelims.

Bibiano Fernandes entered his ONE FC title defense as one of the most well-regarded bantamweights on the planet outside the UFC and certainly looked the part, choking out unbeaten challenger Dae Hwan Kim in the second round. "The Flash," a multiple-time BJJ world champion, was keen to get the fight into his world, shooting for a takedown in the opening seconds and, after some struggle, completing it against the cage.
