2022 was filled with one memorable knockout after another inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon, so narrowing it down to select few to win “Knockout of the Year” honors was likely a tough task.

Nevertheless, the staff over at UFC headquarters picked out the best of the best for your viewing (and voting) pleasure, which you can do on the promotion’s YouTube social media channels, as well as over on the Community tab of the UFC YouTube channel.

Without further ado, here are the nominees in no particular order:

Leon Edwards stops Kamaru Usman via head kick to win title at UFC 278

Michael Chandler sleep Tony Ferguson with front kick to the face at UFC 274

Molly McCann knocks out Luana Carolina with spinning back fist at UFC London

Zhang Weili sleeps Joanna Jedrzejczyk via spinning back fist at UFC 275
