Best of MMA GIF's in February: Knockouts

Now that February has come and gone, it is time to recap the most exciting part of our sport: the Knockouts. The only proper way to recap February’s best knockouts is through GIF highlights provided by Zombie Prophet. In total, there were five major MMA events in February; the UFC held three events, Bellator held one event, and Titan FC held one event. In total, there were thirteen TKO/KO’s over 56 bouts in all five events.

UFC 169 was the first event of the month, headlined by two title fights in the Bantamweight and Featherweight divisions. UFC Fight Night 36 was the second event, headlined by Lyoto Machida’s masterful victory over Gegard Mousasi. The last UFC event of the month was UFC 170 headlined by Ronda Rousey’s TKO victory over Sara McMann. Bellator kicked off it’s 10th season with another Rampage KO, and Titan FC debuted on CBS Sports Network. Overall, it was a solid month of fights, and today I recap the 5 best Knockouts in GIF form.
