2022 was filled with one memorable stoppage after another inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon, so narrowing it down to select few to win “Knockout of the Year” honors was likely a tough task. Nevertheless, the staff over at UFC headquarters picked out the best of the best for your viewing (and voting) pleasure, which you can do on the promotion’s YouTube social media channels, as well as over on the “Community” tab of UFC’s YouTube channel.
Without further ado, here are the nominees in no particular order:
Leon Edwards stops Kamaru Usman via head kick to win title at UFC 278
Michael Chandler sleeps Tony Ferguson with front kick to the face at UFC 274
Molly McCann ices Luana Carolina with a spinning back fist at UFC London
Zhang Weili sleeps Joanna Jedrzejczyk via spinning back fist at UFC 275
