John Gotti III was facing his most experienced opponent yet, but the result was the same.
On the main card of CES 56, which took place Friday at Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Conn., and aired live on UFC Fight Pass, Gotti dumped opponent David Espino (3-3) on his head and sealed the deal with punches on the ground for his fourth first-round knockout in his fourth pro bout.

The finish was officially marked at 1:36 of round one, making this the second longest fight of the welterweight prospect’s brief career. Gotti, the grandson of infamous New York mobster John Gotti, won his last two fights by 28-second and 32-second knockouts.
