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.

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