Everyone from mixed martial arts buffs to casual fans can appreciate a knockout. It's not something that has to be explained and there's never a question of who won. Anderson "The Spider" Silva, the pride of Coritiba, Brazil, has been adding classic KOs to his MMA resume for 15 years now. He has been hailed by his superiors and contemporaries as the greatest middleweight and pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

UFC president Dana White called Silva "the greatest mixed martial artist ever." He has dispatched all who have come for his belt and many of those victories (19 of 32) have come via vicious knockouts, using almost every part of his body. So, in anticipation of another brutal knockout against Stephan Bonnar at UFC 153, check out Anderson Silva's Most Brutal Stoppages.
