5 quickest UFC knockouts in the heavyweight division

#5. Paul Buentello vs. Andrei Arlovski: UFC 55 (0:15 seconds)

Buentello vs Arlovski fight is the fastest ufc heavyweight knockout! Right after the bout started, both of them threw punches. However, Buentello’s one reached first on Arlovski’s face. That was escalated so quickly that no one could understand what had happened. Arlovski falls on Buentello. Then, Buentello dives right away for a takedown. But, after 15 seconds referee stopped the fight as Arlovski looked dazed and confused.

If the Referee did not stop the fight at that moment, it could have been brutal. Arlovski did stand up on his feet; he was dazed. That knockout punch from Buentello to the jaw knocked Arlovski instantly. That punch is considered one of the best UFC knockout punches.
