UFC newcomer Justin Jaynes blasted out of the gates in his first octagon appearance, stopping Frank Camacho in just 41 seconds at UFC on ESPN 11.
Jaynes blitzed Camacho with punches early and landed a pair of left hooks that sat the veteran down in the octagon. When Camacho righted himself, he was turned away and took several concussive blows when Jaynes cornered him against the fence.

According to the UFC, the stoppage was the second-fastest debut win in the promotion’s history. It also came on three days’ notice, as Jaynes got the call to the big show on Wednesday.
“Forty-eight hours ago, I was sitting in my room all depressed ... I’m waiting to wake up from a dream right now,” Jaynes, whose nickname is “Guitar Hero,” told UFC commentator Jon Anik afterward. “The game plan was to hit him harder than he hit me.”
Jaynes, a product of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, has now won five straight bouts. Camacho has suffered back-to-back first-round defeats and drops to 2-5 in the octagon. The Guam native could be in danger of a release from contract.
