One of the things people love about mixed martial arts is the unpredictability that comes with it. You can never really truly know what's going to happen when two opposing forces compete against each other. Sometimes you get intense, back-and-forth scraps where both fighters give their very best for 25 minutes, but then there are situations where a fighter is completely outmatched, outmanoeuvred and utterly outgunned.

While the UFC certainly have the most competitive and intriguing match-ups in the sport, that doesn't mean there haven't been some crushing, lopsided thrashings throughout the promotion's history too. We've gone through the archives and picked the ten wildest beatings to take place inside the Octagon.

From bloodthirsty heavyweight poundings that had opponents leaking all over the UFC canvas to masterful displays of violence that made some of the best fighters in the world look amateur, these merciless performances proved that not every fighter competing inside the UFC is on the same level.

You'll rarely see such dominant performances in the UFC, so we've created this list to showcase some of the most flawless victories the sport has ever seen.
