Already tremendously popular with sports fans for providing scientific reasoning for why our favorite athletes can do what they do, Sport Science was a hit with MMA fans for showcasing fighters like Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Fedor Emelianenko's devastation in the ring. 

On ESPN though, the Emmy award winning show was revitalized as a segment for various shows like SportsCenter, College GameDay and MMA Live. 

For MMA fans however, the science behind the destructive force of our favorite fighter's leg kick or punch double leg takedown is especially entertaining. 

Whether its likening the force of a kick to a full on tackle from Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis or comparing the amount of pressure required to choke someone unconscious to the amount to crush an egg, Sport Science puts it in layman's terms. 

And in the process, we are given a scientific explanation for some of our favorite fighter's freakish ability. 

So let's take a look at Sport Science's examination of some of the sport's best, Jon Jones and The Top MMA Fighters To Appear on ESPN Sport Science.
