Dustin Ortiz provided a huge response to anyone doubting his ability to finish fights.

Ortiz (17-7 MMA, 15-7 UFC) defeated Hector Sandoval (14-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) with a 15-second knockout during UFC Fight Night 114 in Mexico City on Saturday. The victory set a UFC record with the fastest finish ever in the 125-pound division.

Ortiz beat the previous 125-pound record of 44 seconds set by Fredy Serrano during his bout against Yao Zhikui in November 2015.
