Over his eleven-year career with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Junior dos Santos has collected countless knockout victories inside the Octagon, making him one of the most dangerous fighters in the heavyweight division.
Before he heads into his headlining fight against Francis Ngannou this Saturday night (June 29, 2019) at UFC on ESPN 3 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, UFC has unveiled “Cigano’s” top five finishes. And no, he didn’t need his black belt.
5. Knockout of Derrick Lewis at UFC Fight Night 146.
4. Knockout of Fabricio Werdum at UFC 90 (UFC debut).
3. Knockout of Gilbert Yvel at UFC 108.
2. Head kick knockout of Mark Hunt at UFC 160.
1. Knockout of Cain Velasquez at UFC on FOX 1 to win Heavyweight title.
Now, Junior will look to add another highlight reel finish — as well as his fourth straight win — to his resume when he takes on the equally-dangerous “Predator.” You’ve seen the list and the highlights, care to dispute any or make your own top five list of Junior’s most memorable moments inside the Octagon?
