Cage Potato presents the 8 most impressive striking displays we've ever witnessed in MMA. Please note that "impressive" doesn't necessarily mean the best technical displays or most dominant victories. Naw son, there's a range. Some are brutal, some are smoove, and some are just nice all-around displays. All are impressive for one reason or another, and our hats go off to the purveyors of beatdowns featured below. Enjoy...
8.Takanori Gomi vs. Jens Pulver: Pride Shockwave, 12/31/04
7.Fedor Emelianenko vs. Gary Goodridge: Pride Total Elimination, 8/10/03
6.Wanderlei Silva vs. “Rampage” Jackson II: Pride 28, 10/31/04
5.B.J. Penn vs. Sean Sherk: UFC 84, 5/24/08
4.(tie) Jon Jones vs. Andre Gusmao/Stephan Bonnar: UFC 87/94

Actually not a bad list at all,
although I don't know about BJ / Sherk.

You're right about the list, it's not a bad one.....although I do have to disagree with you on the Penn/Sherk fight. I loved that one......the way Penn came flyin' across the octagon and caught Sherk as he bounced off.

Later.

Oh I loved the fight, I just don't know if its near top 8 in mma history for me.
I could rather see CC / Fedor on there.
