Everybody who watches prizefighting loves the emphatic finish, whether it results from a highlight-reel knockout or a slick submission. Those of the come-from-behind variety add an entirely different layer of drama to the equation in mixed martial arts.
The latest installment in the Sherdog Top 10 series examines such cases, from fighters on the verge of being put to sleep unfurling killer combinations to turn the tide to men being battered for several rounds before pulling a submission out of thin air. Brock Lesnar, Anderson Silva and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira all make appearances.
HONORABLE MENTIONS: Frank Mir vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (UFC 140); Roger Huerta vs. Clay Guida “The Ultimate Fighter 6” Finale; Uriah Hall vs. Gegard Mousasi (UFC Fight Night “Barnett vs. Nelson”); Tim Boetsch vs. Yushin Okami (UFC 144); Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Kestutis Smirnovas (K-1 Hero’s 6)
