When it comes to combat sports, fans want to see all-out wars. Whether it's in the boxing ring or inside a cage, fans never want to see a fight go to the judges' scorecards. Now there are those rare examples where fans are entertained by a decision, like Edgar/Maynard 2 and Henderson/Rua, but that was because those were packed full of excitement from beginning to end.
What fans really want is a finish, whether it is a knockout, TKO, submission, or even the occasional referee or doctor stoppage. They want that rush of excitement that comes with seeing a tapout or a strike that levels a person. They don't want a controversial decision or a fight decided by lay and pray.
This list is designed to honor those who work towards giving the fans what they want. These finishers don't want their fate decided by three people at cageside. Their careers are in their hands and they show it almost every fight.
