2. Dan Henderson

A punch doesn't get tagged "H Bomb" for nothing. And as Henderson can attest, it's a stamp mentioned far more often these days than "Decision Dan." Less than half of his 29 wins are knockouts, true, but the moments and manners in which they came have been truly memorable. Henderson is long ranked among MMA's top pound-for-pound fighters, and he cultivated the power to match, scoring KOs at 185, 205 and, just last year, heavyweight over Fedor Emelianenko, a slipping, sloppy, sneaky shot that showed, again, he can do it from anywhere.

Quintessential KO: Michael Bisping, July 11, 2009
