In the end, I couldn't go in any direction other than Hill, considering whom he did it to. Hill finished off Ovince Saint Preux via strikes in the second round, and even though there isn't much excitement about Saint Preux -- we know exactly who he is and isn't at this stage of his career -- he's good, and he's a legitimate test.
And this was his 40th professional fight, 23rd in the UFC. For Hill to not just beat him, but beat him convincingly, and establish range the way he did, fight as disciplined as he did He's been fighting professionally since only This was a highly composed, nuanced effort from him.
I still considered ranking Topuria's knockout of Damon Jackson another veteran higher -- it was that pretty and somewhat unexpected from a talented grappler -- but ultimately, you can't deny what Hill did on Saturday.
I did not see such a thorough performance coming from him in this fight. Raimondi: Jordan Leavitt unleashed a hellacious slam knockout of Matt Wiman that put Wiman to sleep on impact.
Wiman's head bounced off the canvas. Leavitt used his right arm to really drive Wiman's head and neck into the mat. It was a visceral sight.
Wiman was twitching briefly immediately after the slam, though he eventually was able to leave under his own power.

Ortiz was perhaps the hottest prospect in MMA at the time, and had to cut weight to fight Shamrock. After the fight, Shamrock retired from UFC and vacated the title, holding a record as light heavyweight champion.
Ortiz was given another shot at the title, pitted against Wanderlei Silva for the vacant belt. Ortiz won via unanimous decision, beginning a three-year reign as champion from This was a record for consecutive defences at the time.
Returning to defend his title after nearly a year off, Ortiz was defeated by Randy Couture. A re-match was quickly arranged, and Couture retained his title via doctor stoppage in the third round.
Liddell successfully defended his title four times between and , including in rematches against Couture and Ortiz. He finally lost his title to Quinton Jackson in , who held onto the title for one year.
In the next 2 years, the light heavyweight title changed owner no fewer than 5 times, with a competitive division which no one athlete could truly dominate.
Jones became a sensation, the biggest American star of the UFC and earned an international sponsorship deal with Nike. A big favorite with fans, Jones utilizes devastating and physically impressive offensive moves, like spinning kicks.
Despite his at times unorthodox striking, Jones is also an extremely competent wrestler and a versatile fighter. However, soon after the fight Jones tested positive for cocaine before being arrested for an alleged hit and run incident in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Cormier submitted Johnson in the third round to become the new light heavyweight champion — the first new champion in four years.
Cormier successfully defended his belt twice, first against Alexander Gustafsson and then in a rematch against Johnson.
Meanwhile, Jones returned from suspension and defeated Ovince Saint Preux in for an interim title, before receiving a second suspension for doping violations.
Finally, he returned again to face Cormier in a grudge match for the title in at UFC After a close fight, Jones connected with a high kick to the head in the third round, leading to a TKO victory.
However, Jones again failed a doping test, testing positive for an anabolic steroid, and once again his title was stripped.
Jones was faced with yet another suspension. Meanwhile, Cormier was declared the light heavyweight champion, but opted not to defend his belt and instead moving back to the heavyweight division.
Finally, after another year of suspension, Jones returned to regain his vacant light heavyweight title again, defeating Gustafsson in a TKO.
Jones has since defended his title four times once against Gustafsson earning for himself a record for the most wins in UFC title fight history.
Heavy strikers are the order of the day in the light heavyweight class. However, when we analyze the most dominant athlete in the history of the class, Jon Jones, it is clear that a varied skill-set is still necessary to thrive in the division.
Jones has devastating power, but is also an extremely awkward fighter and capable of winning fights both via submission and points.
There is also, perhaps surprisingly, room for different body shapes in the division. Nevertheless, the fights between the two were by no means walk-overs, as Cormier found ways to affect Jones, even if he could not emerge victorious.
While bad for competitiveness, there are still prop bets available to make money from dominant athletes.
For example, many sportsbooks will allow you to bet on the number of successful titles defenses over time or how a specific fight will be decided.
The middleweight division is home to Anderson Silva, holder of the longest run as a champion in any class and widely regarded as one of the best strikers of all time.
Although heavy striking is common, wrestling skills remain extremely important in the middleweight class. The middleweight title had a somewhat stilted beginning due to a high turnover of middleweight fighters in the UFC.
The first title was won by Dave Menne in , but he lost the title almost immediately to Murilo Bustamante. The Brazilian Bustamante successfully defended his title against Matt Lindland, before leaving the UFC in to sign for a competitor.
This left the middleweight title vacant for a couple of years, before wrestling specialist Evan Tanner won the vacant title at UFC 51 in Tanner defended his title against Rich Franklin in the same year.
In a back and forth fight the challenger gradually inflicted so much damage to the face of Tanner that the fight was stopped by the ringside doctor.
Silva was an up-and-coming star in UFC who was developing a reputation as a fearsome and accurate striker. That was the start of the longest reign of a champion in UFC history.Diese Liste der UFC-Champions bietet eine Übersicht über alle Champions der Champion: A UFC History“; ↑ All-time UFC welterweight champions; ↑ A.
