UFC 204 video: See Vitor Belfort's top 8 first-round finishes ahead of Gegard Mousasi fight

Before Vitor Belfort faces off against Gegard Mousasi at next weekend's (Sat., Oct. 8, 2016) pay-per-view (PPV) event in Manchester, England, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) invites to take a look back at "The Phenom's" most-phenomenal first-round finishes.

And there were plenty to choose from, as Vitor's career is one-big highlight reel. Without further ado, take a look at the best ones that made the cut.

8. Rear-naked choke of Anthony Johnson at UFC 142

7. Knockout of Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 133

6. Knockout of Marvin Eastman at UFC 43

5. Knockout of Rich Franklin at UFC 103

4. Knockout of Scott Ferrozzo at UFC 12

3. Knockout of Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 77

2, Knockout of Luke Rockhold at UFC on FX 8

1. Knockout of Wanderlie Silva at UFC Ultimate Brazil

Belfort's last fight didn't exactly end up with a highlight reel finish -- at least not for him -- as he fell to Ronaldo Souza via strikes in the first round at UFC 198 (see it again here).

"The Phenom" will look to add another highlight to his packed reel when he faces Mousasi in the co-main event of UFC 204.
