Best Finish at UFC 129

Might not sound like a hard choice most of the time but UFC 129 was full of great finishes what was the best in your opinion:

Flying Triangle by Garza
Spinning Back Fist by Makdessi
Vicious Elbow by Menjivar
Matyushenko 20 sec KO
Crane Kick by Machida

I might get bashed for this but loved the spinning back fist. Silva hit an impressive kick just like this at 126 but the backfist was vicious. I have seen people buckle but I have never seen anybody get clocked like that he was still out when they announced Makdessi the winner. The elbow was nasty especially on replay tho.

I liked J-Mac who never gave up on his triangle, but.. I would it was GSP via.. I mean Machida via Crane Kick, only because its going to be on more highlight reels.

I got got to say i liked the Matyushenko upper cut because it was so fast and such a hard hit. However I must say I like Matyushenko so I may be a little biased.

I couldn't pick man, they were all pretty sick in their own way - the crane kick was VERY explosive and spontaneous though.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Plethora of amazing finishes, but I gotta go with the spinning backfist, sorry Seagal.

The Crane kick takes it for me, the timing, precision, speed and visual effect were all amazing.

The rest were brilliant but that one really stood out for me. Plus he knocked Randy's tooth clean out of his skill.
