Top 10 - Slam Knockouts in MMA (2019)
Here is a list of 10 of the best slams in MMA that have resulted in a knockout.
10. RUSTAM KHABILOV vs Vinc Pichel
The Ultimate Fighter Finale - December 2012
Not a one-off slam knockout like the rest on this list but 3 German Suplex’s in a row… somebody has been watching Chris Benoit videos.
9. GALORE BOFANDO vs Charlie Ward
UFC Fight Night 113 - July 2017
This was crazy. Bofando just throwing Ward on his head like yesterday’s trash. The sound.
8. LORENZ LARKIN vs Joao Assis
Respect In The Cage - July 2010
A young Lorenz Larking displaying raw strength. Brutal. (01:35)
7. EDDIE WINELAND vs Ken Stone
WEC 53 - December 2010
Oh you have a body triangle? Cute, let me just slam the life out of you.
6. TRAVIS FULTON vs Jeremy Bullock
Extreme Challenge 22 - November 1998
Insane slam but this is why we have weight classes, poor Bullock. Also, Fulton is still fighting and he currently has a record of 255-54-10 (1). What.
5. MATT HUGHES vs Carlos Newton
UFC 38 - July 2002
Such an iconic slam. Prime Hughes was a beast but so was Newton. The suspense of holding him up on the cage… you knew what was going to happen but it didn’t prepare you for that titanic slam. Skip to 7:20 for the slam.
4. GERALD HARRIS vs Aaron Cobb
LFA 63 - December 2016
So that’s why he is called the ‘Slam King’.
3. JESSICA ANDRADE vs Rose Namajunas
UFC 237 - May 2019
Latina Beiber’s real nickname translates to ‘Piledriver’ and she not only pulled one off for a devastating KO but it was in a title fight, the biggest fight of her career after getting beat up by Rose. Amazing. Skip to 4:00 for the slam.
2. FRANK SHAMROCK vs Igor Zinoviev
UFC 16 - March 1998
People may be surprised this is #2 but probably my favourite ever slam. Just the way he effortlessly picked him up and twisted Igor around. A savage dump.
1. RAMPAGE JACKSON vs Ricardo Arona
Pride Critical Countdown - June 2004
It has to be. Rampage - the original slamming machine.
