Marlon Moraes took advantage of the UFC's lull in action between UFC 158 and UFC on Fuel TV 9, scoring the most impressive knockout of the past month.
With his win over Tyson Nam, Moraes has become one of the faces of the up-and-coming World Series of Fighting organization. Though there won't be any title fights in his immediate future, Moraes is gaining more and more recognition as one of the best bantamweights in the world with every win he picks up, having also defeated former WEC champion Miguel Torres under the WSOF banner.
As we move into what is sure to be one of the UFC's busier months of 2013, more stunning knockouts are likely to surpass Moraes' finish of Nam.
However, let's take a look at where Moraes currently stands in the race for Knockout of the Year.
