Video: Watch Joe Rogan count down top 8 heavyweight knockouts in UFC history

There have been some badass knockouts in the UFC heavyweight division. But whose was the baddest? Joe Rogan gives you his top eight in the video above.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing a pair of hard-hitting heavyweight fights to its upcoming UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is scheduled to pop off at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on Oct. 19, 2013.

After Daniel Cormier slugs it out against Roy Nelson in the co-main event, UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez will put his title on the line against former division kingpin Junior dos Santos in the night's headliner.

Heavy leather.

To help get fight fans amped for this weekend's mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza in "The Lone Star State," FOX Sports has released "Ultimate 8," a countdown of the top eight heavyweight knockouts in the history of the promotion.

Here's the list, for you suckers who are stuck at the office and catch watch videos.

8. Cain Velasquez sleeps Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 110
7. Mark Hunt jaw-jacks Stefan Struve at UFC on FUEL TV 8
6. Shane Carwin nearly kills Frank Mir at UFC 111
5. Antonio Silva annihilates Alistair Overeem at UFC 156
4. Travis Browne goes "Bigfoot" on "Reem" at UFC Fight Night 26
3. Junior dos Santos plants Cain Velasquez at UFC on FOX 1
2. Junior dos Santos scores headshot on Mark Hunt at UFC 160
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 knocked out Fighter Y. So, if that's you, go ahead and let us know in the comments section who is missing and why.
