Boom! Just like that, Chas Skelly made UFC history with an out-of-this world finish of Maximo Blanco at just 19 seconds of the first round.

Both men came out quick, throwing flying ninja kicks, but only Skelly's would land hard enough to get an advantage, landing squarely to the mid-section, dropping Blanco like a bag of bricks. Skelly then pounced on Blanco, submitting him with an anaconda choke.

After the fight, Skelly credited former WWE champion Hulk Hogan for his impressive victory.

"My plan was to dropkick him, but I am not that athletic, so I had to go with the Hulk Hogan one-footer."

It was the fastest submission in UFC and WEC featherweight history.
