Niko Price is a fight finishing machine. Price has finished all but 1 of his professional wins with 10 KOs and 3 submissions. In the UFC Niko Price has delivered some finishes that just make you go, “wow!” Price is a fighter that is often down, or in non-ideal situations but always seems to find a way to battle back.

For this, Niko’s X-Factor would undoubtedly be his scrappiness and tenacity through trying and adverse positions and situations. Niko has been flat on his back with his opponent working for an advantageous position on top of him, and turned it into a knockout multiple times. Including Niko’s finish with hammer strikes from the bottom against fellow UFC welterweight Randy Brown. Niko’s most recent fight was a fantastic up-kick finish on James Vick that rendered his opponent unconscious in the very first round. Price has also been hurt on the feet and came back to win as well, as in his fight against Tim Means, where he was stunned by a punch and able to keep his composure long enough to evade punches and land a knockout blow. Any fight Price is in is a must-watch because it could end in any manner on the feet, on the ground or somewhere in between.
