Knockout of the Year

Winner: Holly Holm unleashes her inner Mirko Cro Cop with a vicious and clean left head kick KO, landing 48% of the votes.

Over in Mexico, Irene Aldana picked up some heat from her fans and picked up a very impressive 20% of the vote from a virtually unknown fighter for her spinning wheel kick and punches finish of Maya Arce.

Other nominees: Jinh Yu vs. Darla Harris (10%), Miriam Nakamoto vs. Duda Yankovich (7%), Alida Gray vs. Soannia Tiem (6%), Veronica Rothenhausler vs. Katalina Malungahu (4%), Jessica Rakoczy vs. Roxanne Modaferri (3%), Mylla Torres vs. Camila Lima (2%), Nina Ansaroff vs. Mullah Holland and Vanessa Guimaraes vs. Bruna Paiffer (0%)

My pick: Jinh Yu vs. Darla Harris

Honestly, that was one of the rawest knockouts I've ever seen. Holly Holm's was a textbook round house head kick. But the brutality of Jinh Yu on the aptly nicknamed "Train Wreck" Darla Harris was just another level. "Tripling up" on her left side from the southpaw stance. Left headkick that stunned her. A left that 'left' her knocked out on her feet and a final left as Harris falls back like she was doing a "trust" exercise. Oh, and the fact JInh Yu broke her hand knocking Harris out adds a few points in my books too. That final image of Harris laying motionless on the ground, leaned up against the cage is just...damn.
