During yesterday's UFC 140 pay-per-view event, history was made in the first fight of the evening.
Featherweight contenders Mark Hominick (20-10) and Jung Chan-Sung (12-3) faced off in the Octagon in a match that was a fast, decisive victory.
In fact, the match ended in just seven seconds, which ties the UFC record as the fastest fight in history.
The more surprising part was that it was underdog Jung Chan-Sung who walked away victorious.
Hominick walked to the center of the Octagon unprepared for Chan-Sung, who immediately jumped on the opportunity.
After a flurry of shots, the referee stepped in declaring the winner Chan-Sung by TKO.
Hominick didn't even know what hit him.
The win makes Chan-Sung 2-0 while fighting in the UFC.
In the featherweight division, that may be all he needs to get a shot at the title.
ESPN ranks Hominick as the No. 4 fighter in the weight class. Chan-Sung just had his way with him in record-setting time.
The featherweight division has been in shambles for quite some time.
Jose Aldo is the decisive champion. He has really dominated every opponent that has been put in front of him. There aren't too many challengers left who Aldo hasn't already beaten on.
Chances are, it would be more of the same result for Aldo if he stepped into the Octagon with Chan-Sung.
However, with such limited competition available, that title shot could come quickly for Chan-Sung.
It may take one more win against a top-tier competitor in the weight class, but a title shot for Chan-Sung isn't going to be too far away.
