Knockout of the Year (So Far) 2012

Bellator 61 Highlights Photo


With Season 7 of Bellator Fighting Championships just around the corner, it feels appropriate to look back at the best of the best of 2012 so far. In terms of sheer entertainment value, few things in MMA top a one-shot knockout. Perhaps no one in Bellator today has more natural finishing power than two-time middleweight tournament semifinalist Brian Rogers.

Appropriately nicknamed "The Predator," the Ohio native has finished each of his nine wins in the first round, including eight knockouts. At Bellator 61 in March, Rogers once again showed his devastating power. His opponent Vitor Vianna, a previous tournament finalist who had only been stopped once due to injury, was unable to get Rogers to the mat and work his jiu-jitsu. Rogers was in his element on the feet and while a win seemed probable, the result was astounding.

After a crisp one-two made Vianna stumble, Rogers charged in and connected flush with a flying knee. His Brazilian foe immediately crumbled, unconscious before hitting the mat. Rogers lifted his hands in victory knowing any follow up was unnecessary, and the ref immediately halted the action.

"The Predator" was fired up in his post-fight interview, telling fans to this wasn't his first flying knee and that they should "google it." We'll save you some keystrokes and just get straight to it. Season 7 starts Friday, September 28, and Rogers returns to the cage October 26 at Bellator 78.

David Rickels entered his welterweight quarterfinal last March a perfect 9-0, having earned six wins by submission. He hadn't scored a knockout since his pro debut. That all changed rather quickly, as his 22-second knockout was the fastest of the year in Bellator.
