Everyone loves a good underdog, especially when it comes to combat sports. Upsets are what make people stick around longer for the excitement. Since UFC's proliferation, there has been no shortage of upsets. Here, we take a look at the top 5 biggest upsets in UFC history.
Like always, the MMA GOAT, Georges St-Pierre, was a heavy favorite for his first UFC welterweight title defense against Matt Serra. However, Serra defeated GSP via TKO in the first round. The biggest upset in the history of UFC's welterweight division.
Holly Holm managed to pull the biggest upset in the history of the entire UFC women's division by handing Ronda Rousey her first professional loss via KO. As a result, Holm became the new UFC women's bantamweight champion.
Michael Bisping became the new UFC middleweight champion by defeating Luke Rockhold via KO in the first round. Not many expected the fight to end in this way, as Rockhold defeated Bisping in their first fight.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk was a heavy favorite for this fight as she was the most dominating UFC women's strawweight champion. However, Rose Namajunas knocked out Jedrzejczyk in the first round and became the new UFC women's strawweight champion.
Chris Weidman defeated Anderson Silva via KO in the second round. Nobody expected that to happen, as Silva had never lost since he became the UFC middleweight champion at UFC 64, which was 7 years ago before he clashed against Weidman.
