A 25-year-old American called "Khaos" finished his opponent after 27 seconds of his UFC debut, but not before hitting him three times while he was defenseless on the canvas.

Meet Kalinn Williams, a fearless and all-action striker who took the UFC 247 preliminary card by storm at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on Saturday.

Williams, a 6-foot tall welterweight from Detroit, fought for the first time as a professional mixed martial artist in 2017. In the three years since competing in regional MMA firms, he put together a strong record of nine wins (4 KOs, 1 sub, 4 decisions) against one loss.

His 11th fight last weekend was his first under the UFC banner. And boy, did he know how to make a statement.

Within seconds of the start of the fight, Williams kicked Alex Morono in the calf, threw lunging combinations of strikes, and, with his back to the fence, floored him with aggressive striking.

Watch the 27-second knockout here:

The UFC commentator Joe Rogan called the victory "outstanding" during the broadcast.

He added: "That's how you make a UFC debut, ladies and gentlemen!"

UFC president Dana White has been hard at work trying everything within his power to keep UFC 249 intact. His initial belief was that he'd even be able to keep the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson main event intact. Amidst the regulatory hurdles and restrictions that continue to fly up, White is running out of time to stick with his intended April 18 date. But even if he is able to do so, the main event between Khabib and Ferguson has been nixed for the fifth time. After returning to Russia, Nurmagomedov found himself basically locked down, as his country closed its borders. There was a glimmer of hope that he might be able to fly around the globe on a private business flight in...
