The overhand right is as common in MMA as goals are to soccer. Fighters like Chuck Liddell and Dan Henderson can attribute some of their most memorable career highlights to this punch, as can numerous others.

Great fighters around the world have suffered defeat at the hands of this legendary attack. It doesn't have the flash of a flying knee or a head kick, it might not be as technical as a well placed jab, it might lack the intrinsic beauty of a well placed submission, but one thing is certain; this punch can and often does end fights at a moment's notice.

The list that follows are my top picks for MMA's favorite punch. We will see iron chins being bent, glass jaws being shattered, and egos being deflated at the end of one mighty swing. We will watch as knees buckle and backs meet canvas. We will see what has come to be expected of the overhand right: knockouts. Whether it's ending the fight or leading to it, spectacular finishes are sure to follow. Here's my take on the top 10 overhand rights to ever end a fight.
