Video: Watch the best UFC finishes of the first half of 2021

The UFC’s first half of 2021 has provided some all-time great highlights already.

In championship fights alone, fans were treated to a trio of sensational knockouts as Francis Ngannou completed his ascension to the heavyweight throne with a finish of rival Stipe Miocic, Rose Namajunas landed a head kick for the ages on Zhang Weili to regain the strawweight championship, and welterweight champion Kamaru Usman silenced any doubts about his punching power with a blistering one-shot KO of Jorge Masvidal.

Watch the UFC’s compilation of 2021 highlights above.

Also featured are Cory Sandhagen’s devastating flying knee knockout of former UFC champion Frankie Edgar, Jiri Prochazka making Dominick Reyes face-plant with a spinning back elbow, and Edson Barboza causing Shane Burgos’ body to shut down in never-before-seen fashion.

The UFC’s next six months of events kick off next Saturday with UFC 264 in Las Vegas, headlined by the trilogy bout between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor.
