5 Knockout punches in UFC that felt like a chair shot

#5 Cung Le vs. Rich Franklin

Never mess with Cung Le. Ever. The former Strikeforce Champion's stint in the UFC was highly anticipated for a long time, and once he made the transition over he didn't disappoint - at least not during this fight.

After a series of desperate shots thrown Le managed to connect with an almighty blow that saw Franklin crumble to the canvas quicker than anyone had ever seen.

It was a big, big moment for Le as not only did he win the Knockout of the Year award but he also did it at the first ever UFC event in China. It proved to the company that there was money in that market, which is why they eventually returned to the same arena with Le once again headlining against Michael Bisping.

The result didn't turn out the same way, but we'll always have this Franklin knockout to treasure.
