The intros lasted longer than the UFC Fight Night 94 main card between featherweights Chas Skelly and Maximo Blanco.
The former opened with a front kick that dropped his opponent, then followed up with a split-second guillotine-turned-d'arce choke to set the record for the quickest submission in UFC and World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight history at 19 seconds.
What further typified the masterful win was the sight of Blanco knocked out cold in the unforgiving arms of Skelly.
Even the victor's post-fight interview looked more challenging than the match itself:
Skelly improves to a 5-2 win-loss record, while Blanco drops to 4-5 under UFC rule.
