I think that Swick's knock out over Johnson was way more brutal and cool than Machida's knock out over Bader. The technique from Machida was nice, but the knock out was quick and pretty basic looking. It wasn't that brutal, after the first replay, I wasn't eager to see another one.
Swick's knock out was off of a trip and was like a bomb hitting the ground out of nowhere, except it was his fist hitting Johnson's chin. The two hard follow up punches showed how much Swick wanted to make sure he got that win he has been craving inside of the octagon for the last couple of years. It was a brutal knock out and follow up that I watched over and over again. Knock outs don't always have to have the most technique to be exciting to watch. After such a hard first round for Swick, nobody can say they saw that knock out coming. It had me out of my seat in excitement. Not so much Machida's knock out, even though it may be considered more impressive.
Swick deserved the knock out of the night in my opinion, and that opinion really is unbiased since I'm not a huge fan of either fighter.
