Worst Beatdowns from the First Half of 2013
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Losing sucks. 

In the sport of MMA, unlike checkers or, say, flag football, a loss is oftentimes brutal and violent, a scary reminder of how capably the human form can dismantle an adversary. 

To reflect on these instances and to remind ourselves of our ever-vulnerable state of mortality, let us recap the top 5 beatdowns from the first half of 2013. 

Since the word "beatdown" is subjectively defined, here are some qualities I considered when compiling the list:

  • A one-shot knockout is not a beatdown unless the knockout occurred after a prolonged beating.  
  • The longer a beatdown carries on, the better. 
  • A beatdown is completely one-sided. 
  • Some factor of humiliation is involved. The loser is crushed physically and mentally. 
  • Blood always helps. 
  • If asked to choose between a rematch and an all-day marathon blasting Justin Bieber's latest album, the loser grabs the headphones and dies a little inside. 

Still with me? Click on to see which matchup comes in at No. 5.
