Abus Magomedov needed just 19 seconds to make a statement in his UFC debut.
A 32-year-old middleweight fighting out of Dagestan, Magomedov introduced himself to the UFC’s audience in Sept. 2022 with a matchup against Dustin Stoltzfus on the undercard of UFC Paris. Coming into the promotion with the credentials of a KSW veteran and former PFL finalist, Magomedov caught Stoltzfus’ attention swiftly, rocking him with a nasty front kick just 12 seconds into the bout. The end from there was a mere formality.
Sensing the moment, Magomedov lunged onto Stoltzfus and unloaded a barrage of hooks and uppercuts to seal one of the most explosive UFC debuts in quite some time.
