As well as Chimaev’s first two fights inside the UFC Octagon in July, the contest ended prior to the final horn. This time it was all over in as many as 17 seconds only.

Chimaev stalked Meerschaert to deliver one shot, which dropped his opponent to the ground and that was it. The referee immediately intervened and waved the fight off. Watch the knockout video below.

With the win Khamzat Chimaev remained undefeated and updated his record to 9-0. Gerald Meerschaert suffered the second defeat in a row and dropped to 31-14.

In addition, ESPN MMA reported (via Twitter) that “Khamzat Chimaev became the quickest fighter to 3-0 in UFC modern era history, surpassing Johnny Walker’s 105 days. Chimaev is also the fastest to three wins at any point in a UFC career, surpassing Bobby Green’s 84 days.”
