Monday morning knockout: Guseinov’s spinning backfist

Maggie Hendricks

What's the perfect complement to your coffee and Wheaties? A spinning backfist knockout, of course.

This comes courtesy of Arthur Guseinov. He delivered the KO of Tyson Jeffries at Friday night's M-1 Challenge card, breaking a two-fight losing streak. Showtime commentator Mauro Ranallo called it the knockout of the year, but considering some of the knockouts that have already happened, that's a tough list to break onto. Taking into account the work of Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida, Cheick Kongo, and Sam Stout, where do you rank this KO? Tell us in the comments or on Facebook.
