9. Chuck Liddell vs. Rampage Jackson – UFC 71
Chuck Liddell is one of the hardest hitting 205-pounders the UFC has ever seen, and in 2007 ‘The Iceman’ was looked at as one of the most feared men on the planet.
Liddell was riding a seven-fight win streak when he went into his bout with Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson at UFC 71, and hadn’t lost a bout in nearly five years. The last man Liddell had lost to, however, was none other than ‘Rampage’ himself.
Sadly for Liddell the result would be no different. Around the two minute mark of the first round Jackson connected with a clean strike to Liddell’s chin that shut his lights out in a nasty way.
Jackson would win his first and only UFC title of his career, while Liddell would go on to only win one of his next five bouts before retiring in 2010.
