SLAM TIME. No order, as usual. Lets watch loads of people get unwillingly dumped on their heads!
1. THE KIMBOPLEX is born, against Houston Alexander.
Kimbo Slice is a bit rubbish. He made a name for himself knocking out idiots on youtube and eventually made his way into MMA, where he has shown himself to be pretty outclassed in every aspect of the game. In this fight, however, Houston Alexander spent most of the three rounds running away. Kimbo did catch him at one point, and delivered this mighty fucking suplex. After this, he gassed spectacularly. You can SEE him using up the last of his energy to dump Alexander with this.
2. Randleman tries to kill Fedor, but finds out that it is impossible.
OUCH. Now, you’ll be thinking that this suplex was a fight-ender, what with Fedor Emilianeko ending up right on his neck. You’re wrong, however, as Fedor might actually be a robot created during the cold war by the USSR and can probably survive a nuclear attack aimed directly at his face. If they followed through with their plans, we’d all be speaking Russian right now, and we’d all have very sore arms. You know, due to all the armbars he’s be handing out to people.
3. Sapp piledrives Nogueira into the mat.
Nogueira again, proving once and for all that he is an MMA legend. He tends to take an inhuman amount of punishment in his fights, before slapping on a beautiful submission out of nowhere. It is his style and part of the reason his face looks like a burst sausage. Now, “spiking” an opponent directly down onto their head is actually illegal in the unified rules of MMA, but this was in Japan, in PRIDE FC, where the rules were fast and loose at best. Bobb Sapp is a bit rubbish at MMA, but is an absolute monster and a cult hero in Japan. He threw Nogueira around like he was a doll. Much like the above slam on Fedor, “Big Nog” went on to win this fight, although he may have been a few inches shorter after this.

4. Joe Stevenson channels Chris Benoit on Joe Pellegrino.
No, that doesn’t mean he killed his wife and kid then hung himself in the weight room. It means he delivered an insane german suplex during a UFC fight. Now, in Pro Wrestling, this move is two people working together, with one lifting and one jumping with it. Now, in this case, one of these men DOESN’T want to get suplexed, so this is pure deadlift. Crazy shit.

5. Ortiz KO’s Evan Tanner with a powerslam.
Pure power here by Ortiz to defend his UFC title. Absolutely smashes Tanner into the mat, completely flattening him and knocking him unconcious. Shows how important a vicious takedown can be in a fight, rather than just a way of getting someone into a position for ground and pound/submissions.
