10. Anthony Johnson
As one of the heaviest hitters ever to set foot in the Octagon, it seems only right that Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson’ makes it into the Top 10.
With 11 finishes in 13 total UFC victories, Johnson’s record matches that of veteran star Matt ‘The Immortal’ Brown, but the tiebreaker that sees ‘Rumble’ clinch 10th place is the fact that he boasts nine finishes in the first round, not to mention an impressive eight clean KOs on his record.
Johnson is also unique in the sense that he’s proven to be an equally effective at stopping opponents at both welterweight (170 pounds) and light heavyweight (205 pounds).
It’s rare that a fighter is able to maintain his earth-shaking power so effectively when leapfrogging up several weight classes, but some of ‘Rumble’s’ biggest finishes have actually come at 205, with him starching the likes of Alexander Gustafsson, Glover Teixeira, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ryan Bader with the kind of concussive punching power that others can only dream of.
