Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal made history on Saturday night as he pulled off the fastest finish ever in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The American welterweight locked horns with Ben Askren in the main card of UFC 239 pay-per-view event at the T-mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
What was expected as a barnburner affair turned out to be a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it kind of fight.
Masvidal needed only five seconds to destroy the former Bellator and ONE championship kingpin.
Just right after the opening bell, a charging Masvidal hit Askren with flying knees, which sent ‘Funky’ down the mat.
‘Gamebred’ was soon on Askren, landing some punches to finish the fight in just five seconds into the opening round.
It was the fastest knockout in UFC history and a potential strong contender for the Knockout of the Year Recognition.
‘Gamebred’ broke Duane Ludwig’s 6-second KO record.
