This past weekend at UFC Fight Night: Pettis vs Moreno there were a record of seven first round finishes. So today we are going to look at the top ten first round finishes that have happened in the UFC's history. This list is debatable so feel free to give out your own opinions on what is the best first round finish or if you know one that is not on this list that should be. So here are my top ten.
Jon Jones has had an incredible comeback story as of late after finally recapturing the gold at UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones 2. His performance in that fight was just one of many that he has showcased for nearly a decade. This list will highlight some of his most impressive wins inside the octagon. The ranking is determined by how dominant Jones was in the fight, who the opponent was, how important the fight was for Jones, and how the win was achieved.
