February is a short month, but still had its share of knockouts in the MMA world. From UFC Fight Night stoppages, to Bellator beatings and ONE Championship stoppages, we take a look back on our top 10 knockouts of the past month.

3. UFC Fight Night 105: Thiago Santos' Spinning Success over Jack Marshman

Really, Santos' spinning heel kick was enough to stop Marshman. A second after the unpredictable kick landed, Marshman dropped to the canvas, out of it. Santos eagerly jumped on him and got a few more hard ground strikes before the referee was able to intercede and make the end official.
