UFC Greenville video: Jair Rozenstruik scores second-fastest knockout in UFC heavyweight history

Nine seconds. That’s all it took for UFC heavyweight Jair Rozenstruik needed to finish Allen Crowder at UFC Greenville on Saturday afternoon.

During the scrap, Rozenstruik and Crowder met in the enter of the Octagon for the third fight of the night at UFC Greenville. After a quick touch the gloves, fans saw Rozenstruik send Crowder crumpling to the canvas, courtesy of a stiff left jab to the jaw.

With his sense already reeling, Crowder attempted to regain his footing but found himself on the receiving end of a barrage of crippling punches from Rozenstruik, forcing the referee to stop the fight.

This knockout etches Rozenstruik’s into the record book as the second-fastest knockout in UFC heavyweight history, behind only Don Frye’s eight-second win over Thomas Ramirez at UFC 8 in 1996.

Rozenstruik now moves 8-0 professionally, with all but one of those wins coming by way of (T)KO. Crowder, on the other hand, drops to 10-4.
