Vine: Leon Edwards records the fastest Knockout in UFC welterweight history

Holy haymaker

Ben Kiely

Leon Edwards got the job done so quickly last night that his entire fight almost fit into a Vine.

The English fighter grabbed his first win in the UFC by viciously knocking out Seth Baczynski on the Fight Night 64 prelims.

The Polish Pistola came out of the starting blocks as the aggressor, which proved to be detrimental. After walking Edwards down and trying to land big, the British fighter landed flush with a stiff left straight that sent him crashing down to the canvas.

Edwards followed him down to the mat to try to land some ground and pound but the ref decided Baczynski had enough punishment for one night and awarded Edwards the KO win after just eight seconds. The brutal haymaker earned him a lucrative Performance of the Night bonus for his troubles.
