Four seconds to approach, three to attack. The fastest take-out in the UFC. Video
Fastest knockout in lightweight history. Even Khabib and Tyson could envy.
On the night of August 6-7, UFC Vegas 69 will take place, headlined by a fight between light heavyweights Thiago Santos and Jamal Hill. In addition to them, lightweight Terrence McKinney, known for his fast finishes, will perform on the card. He has three wins in less than 20 seconds.
But this time he has to close the loss to Drew Dober. And before the start of the event, let’s remember how quickly Terrence is able to deal with his opponents. In June 2021, the strong gatekeeper Matt Frevola fell under the hand, with whom Arman Tsarukyan himself was taken all three rounds. But McKinney does not recognize authorities and put Matt in seven seconds. He spent four seconds on reconnaissance with rapprochement and three seconds on a fatal deuce with finishing.

This is the fastest knockout in lightweight history. Even the great Mike Tyson and former lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov didn’t deal with their opponents so quickly. Iron Mike even has an iconic quote about how long a fight should last in his understanding.
“The fight should last 13 seconds: 2 seconds to approach, 1 second to hit, 10 seconds to count the referee,” Tyson said.
Thus, McKinney surpassed both legends in the duration of the fight. Fortunately, there are no countdowns in MMA, otherwise this achievement would be devalued. And so we have a hope that this modest card at the upcoming tournament will be diluted with another bright performance performed by Terrence McKinney.
