Terrance McKinney made his UFC debut in style. ‘T.Wrecks’ fought just eight days ago at LFA 109 where he stopped Michael Irizarry in the very first round. He accepted a short notice turnaround to take on UFC veteran Matt Frevola in arguably one of the biggest cards of this year.

McKinney could not have asked for a better debut as the very first punch he threw dropped Frevola. Subsequently, he proceeded to the ground-and-pound, forcing the referee to end proceedings just seven seconds after giving them the go-ahead to fight.

With his performance, he entered the UFC records books and is tied for the fourth-fastest knockout. ‘T.Wrecks’ is a few seconds shy of the record set by Jorge Masvidal. McKinney’s performance was even more impressive considering he accepted the fight on eight days’ notice.
