8. Cody Garbrandt vs. Raphael Assuncao
After three straight defeats by KO, Garbrandt came back strong. The former UFC bantamweight champion looked like he was on track to be a superstar but a disappointing fight IQ cost him badly in the cage. He faced veteran Assuncao at UFC 250 and knew that this was his final opportunity to stay relevant. In the end, he stole the show with a devastating finish.
It came at the end of the first round of their fight. Assuncao threw a strike, but ‘No-Love’ ducked underneath and swung a fearsome overhand to crush his Brazilian opponent. Assuncao crashed to the ground like a fallen tree. It was spectacular, clinical, and devastating from Garbrandt and one of the best knockouts of 2020, all with one second left in the round.
