The view from the top must have been so much better than the view from the bottom for Sherron "Rob Roy" Leggett.

For those unfamiliar with Leggett's stint within World Extreme Cagefighting, the former Agallar Combative Systems fighter suffered a brutal slam on his head back in 2007 at WEC 29 against Jamie Varner that led to a first round TKO defeat.

But the loss didn't come without Leggett learning a lesson or two. Fully reminiscent of the slam, "Rob Roy" turned the tables last year within the first round of the Combat USA lightweight tournament against Dennis Anderson by using a very similar maneuver that would earn him the victory and the USCS Knockout of the Year.

Officially recorded as a TKO over Anderson last January, fans watched as Anderson attempted to latch on a guillotine over his wrestling counterpart. But Leggett immediately responded by regaining his footing, grabbing onto his opponent, and body slamming him headfirst into the mat. Anderson was out instantly.

The crowd went wild following the slam as did the hype surrounding the upcoming matchup between Leggett and James Warfield. The knockout remains one of the most notable highlights throughout the lengthy and impressive career of "Rob Roy".

Watch the knockout in its entirety near the 17-minute mark of the video below.
