Every time an MMA fighter steps into the cage with someone eager to pound him into a bloody pulp, there's a chance that he'll get, as Smokey famously said in "Friday," "knocked the fugg out."
The most brutal knockouts come in the form of a single devastating punch, while others come after a flurry of hooks and uppercuts. But the best, in our humble opinion, come when someone is blasted to the mat by a vicious, thundering kick to the face. These knockouts aren't pretty, but they sure are fun to watch.
Now that we've taken the best of the most brutal KOs from UFC, Pride, Strikeforce and beyond and put them into gif form, you can watch them over and over and over again. Giddyup.
