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 entered Friday’s bout coming off three losses in his last four fights and caught a charging Sandoval with a counter 1-2 combination before capturing the victory with a ground and pound.
Ortiz beat the previous 125-pound record of 44 seconds set by Fredy Serrano during his bout against Yao Zhikui in November 2015.
