Five Best UFC Finishes of 2020 (So Far!)



This year hasn’t been great for any sports out there. This is the time when seasons of various sports begin but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everything has gone to trash. The world is on lockdown and all the major sports events are canceled or postponed. In this time, we had hoped from Dana White as he had promised the fans that UFC 249 would be as per schedule on April 18. But as of now, the conditions are getting worse and UFC 249 is called off. You might have missed the most anticipated fight of the year but it isn’t a bad idea to re-watch some top UFC matches of the year. You can go to practice with your cheap boxing gloves but these UFC finishes will boost your energy to train more.

McGregor VS Cerrone (UFC 246)

The return of former UFC champion in two divisions was one of the best fights of the year. Conor McGregor returned to the octagon against Donald Cerrone in January 2020 after his defeat against Khabib in October 2018. McGregor is famous for his stopping opponent in the first round and he did the same in this match by knocking Cerrone out in 40 seconds by shoulder strike and then head kick and a flying knee. Love him or hate him you can’t ignore the Irishman. This is, undoubtedly, the best finish of 2020 in UFC so far.

Jan Blachowicz VS Corey Anderson (UFC on ESPN+ 25)

These two light heavyweight contenders met each other in the octagon on after five years in February. The last they fought at UFC 191 in September 2015 and Anderson won the match unanimous decision. But this time Blachowicz stopped Anderson in the first round at 03:08. The right hand of Blachowicz sent Anderson to the canvas when the later closed the distance to unload a kick. Now Blachowicz (ranked sixth) is looking for the match with Jon Jones.

Beneil Dariush VS Drakkar Klose (UFC 248)

The last UFC event we saw on March 8 the match between these two fighters was one of the biggest fights of UFC 248. When Drakkar had backed him up against the fence, Beneil unloaded with a big overhand right that wobbled Drakkar and Beneil took the chance to land a left punch and sent the opponent straight to the canvas. The second round stoppage couldn’t be missed.

Charles Oliveira VS Kevin Lee (UFC on ESPN+ 28)

This is one of the surprising finishes of the UFC this year. Charles Oliveira got his name in headlines when he defeated Kevin Lee early in the third round. Oliveira showed diversity in his stand-up game. When Lee has lost most of his strength in takedowns, his opponent took the opportunity to get by him by the neck and submitted him with a guillotine choke

Deiveson Figueiredo VS Joseph Benavidez (UFC on ESPN+ 27)

This flyweight championship match was a little bit bittersweet for the winner Deiveson Figueiredo as he wasn’t crowned the title. Figueiredo missed the weight before the fight. He finished the match in round 2 at 01:54 when he dropped Benavidez with his right-hand punch. Deiveson didn’t get the belt but he proved why he is one of the best fighters in the division.
