UFC on Fox 16 is this Saturday in Chicago. While the main-event is a bantamweight title fight between T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barão, it’s the lightweight clash between Edson “Junior” Barboza and Paul “The Irish Dragon” Felder that’s set to be the best bout on the card.

Both men are some of the most dynamic strikers in their division, and they sport outstanding knockout rates more than 65 percent. Felder and Barboza also throw a decent amount of strikes per minute and defend opposing strikes above a 50 percent clip. However, it’s their huge, spinning knockouts that will be pitted against each other in this upcoming clash.

Back at UFC 142, Barboza unleashed an epic spinning wheel kick on Terry Etim, earning him Tapology’s No. 1 knockout for 2012, and it currently sits at the fourth best KO of all-time.

In January, at UFC 182, Paul Felder landed a thunderous spinning back fist on Danny Castillo, and that knockout is the No. 1 KO for 2015 so far.

There’s a very good chance this bout ends with another tremendous spinning knockout, so don’t miss UFC on Fox 16, this Saturday, starting at 6 p.m. EST.
