There's nothing more exhilarating than watching a Rocky Balboa-like story come to life in the spectrum of MMA.

Since the UFC's inception in 1993, fighters have pulled off incredible and inspiring comeback stories, unthinkable feats that left fans with goosebumps.

Some of the best memories in the sport's brief history came about because of unexpected efforts from resilient fighters that rose from the ashes.

Those who witnessed the main-event bout between Cheick Kongo and Pat Barry at UFC Live 4 were privileged to see one of these moments.

On the brink of unconsciousness, Kongo turned the tide on Barry in an instant and KO'd the former K-1 fighter with a pair of right hands that utterly stunned the crowd at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center.

Kongo shocked Barry and wowed a sleepy crowd, only failing to reach the top 10 because his bout with "HD" ended in just 2:36.

While Kongo didn't make the cut, here are the 10 greatest comeback moments in MMA history.

All stats according to Fightmetric.com.
