8) Eyes wide shut
There’s no way around it. Despite standing right in front of the action, referee Chip Snider was blind to this absurd illegal knee.
The culprit, Charles Oliveira, would go on to submit Nik Lentz at UFC on Versus 4 after stunning him with this strike. Originally ruled a victory for the Brazilian, it would later be overturned to a no contest.
It remains one of the most blatant and missed illegal knees of all time.
