UFC careers don’t start out much more dominant than what Khaos Williams is doing right now.
With one punch, the Michigan-based fighter ended his fight against Abdul Razak Alhassan in under 30 seconds on Saturday. The fight was called by the time he tried to follow up the strike.
“It's not personal. It's just punishment,” Williams said after the fight. “I’ve been waiting to be able to get on TV and do this. I was a diamond in the rough just waiting to be buffed off and shown to the world.”

Williams’ professional MMA record now sits at 11-1. If UFC president Dana White’s reaction to Saturday’s win is any judge, you have to wonder if Williams will soon be facing some more notable names in the competitive welterweight division.

High praise from the man who matters in MMA.
