The great thing about MMA is the fact that a fight could be over in a split second—as you make your way to the fridge for that cold can of Budweiser to settle down and enjoy the nights proceedings…Boom, and it’s over.
That’s the beauty of the sport, and one of the reasons that in some respects it surpasses boxing with regards to entertainment value and the expectation of the unexpected—favorites are never really the favorites unless they have the monikers of “The Spider,” “Rush” and “Bones,” attached to their handles.
At UFC 140 we witnessed one of the fastest KOs in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, courtesy of Chan “The Korean Zombie” Sung Jung’s (almost a one punch KO) knockout of Mark Hominick, add in a few “it ain’t over till the fat lady sings” strikes, and it was job done.
A KO no less that earned him Knockout out of the Night honors.
Still, there are others who could easily have the accolade of fastest knockout in UFC history bestowed upon them.
So here are the nominees for the fastest KO in UFC history
Todd “Duff Man” Duffee vs. Tim “The Thrashing Machine” Hague: UFC 102
Duane “Bang” Ludwig vs. Jonathan “The Road Warrior” Goulet: UFC Fight Night 3
Chan Sung Jung vs. Mark “The Machine” Hominick: UFC 140
And the winner is?
