Video: Watch Joe Rogan lists Top 8 head kick knockouts in UFC history

There have been some badass head kick knockouts inside UFC's Octagon, but whose was the best? Joe Rogan gives you his great eight in the video above.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing a pair of hard-hitting Middleweight fights to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 35 event, which is scheduled to pop off at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Ga., on Jan. 15, 2014.

After Lorenz Larkin slugs it out against Brad Tavares in the co-main event, former Strikeforce Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will face Constantinos Philippou in the night's headliner.

To help get fight fans pumped for the Fox Sports 1 mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza, UFC has released "Ultimate 8," a countdown of the Top 8 head kick knockouts in the history of the promotion.

Here's the transcribed list for the suckers among us who are stuck at the office and can't watch videos ... or else!:

8. Alan Belcher flattens Jorge Santiago at UFC Fight Night 7
7. Georges St-Pierre knocks out Matt Hughes at UFC 165
6. Rashad Evans makes Sean Salmon go night-night at UFC Fight Night 8
5. Anthony Pettis knocks Joe Lauzon's block off at UFC 144
4. Lyoto Machida retires Randy Couture with "Karate Kid" kick at UFC 129
3. Anderson Silva pastes Vitor Belfort at UFC 126
2. Edson Barboza wheel kicks Terry Etim at UFC 142
1. Gabriel Gonzaga "Cro Cops" Mirko Filipovic at UFC 70

There you have it.

Naturally, any list is subjective, which means someone, somewhere is shaking his or her head because Rogan forgot to include "Fighter X" when he or she knocked out "Fighter Y." So, if that's you, go ahead and let us know in the comments section below.

Who is missing and why?
