I'm thinking the first time I saw it was when GSP did it. Anyone do it before him?
Not sure but the first one that I remember finishing a fight was Gonzaga vs Jordan at UFC 56.
I don't know to be honest. All I remember is GSP being the one that caught my attention with it.
I always thought it was superman...
My whole life is a lie
Has superman ever done a superman punch? There's the question
Has donkey from Shrek ever done a donkey punch? I'd donkey punch princess fiona.
Well before she got fat and green at least.
Just spent 16 minutes of my life trying to find video of this. Installed a divx player for nothing.
Has Superman done a GSP punch, that's the question.
I was at this fight! UFC 36 at the start of the 4th round Hughes throws one.
At 20:30 on the video
Get Splinty to make a ouija board function and we'll ask him over group chat

GSP vs Ivan Menjivar
chuck norris. he named it after the first man to die from it.
So it was GSP after all?
I can't say anybody's name with certainty. I'll rely on old school buffs like DA cofty and Crowbar to answer
But before we answer, lets look to the BEST superman punch..Kenny "I Finish Fights" Florian:
The earliest mma superman punch I am aware of is, of course, El Guapo:
UFC 20 , May 7 1999
The angle is not the best, but that's Bas feinting, switching, leaving the ground...

Start at 28:00
If anyone has fightpass, maybe you can get us a highres gif out of it
While I think Bas' punch is debatable, your post definitely is a good contributing one. Interesting stuff.
I was waiting for this due to the angle.
Its a feint left, stiffenen, leap with the right. Its identical to one of the gifs above. So I'll challenge someone to tell me what he's doing if its not a superman punch. A
nd I think is only a topic of conversation because I have a grainy link and footage only of the back instead of the high res items above. It happens when you are the first so long ago
I'm going to see if I can get Bas to directly answer this. Stephen Quadros is my in, that dude is HELLA nice and super cool, very friendly.
By all means! This is an important piece if MMA history
But just wacth that video at 28:00 ,5 times and tell me its not a super man punch
How awesome would it be that Stephen Quadros invented the term ground n pound(did he also coin the term lay and pray??), and his commentary tag team buddy Bas Rutten the first to do a superman punch in mma.
