Fun Fact: Todd Duffee Didn’t Actually Score the Fastest KO in UFC History

(Props: Altofsky)

According to Mike Goldberg, Todd Duffee‘s seven-second pwnage of Tim Hague at UFC 102 was "officially the fastest knockout in UFC history." Previously, the company line was that James Irvin and Don Frye held the record jointly with their eight-second knockouts of Houston Alexander and Thomas Ramirez, respectively. But hardcore fans know the truth. Above is a gif of Duane "Bang" Ludwig‘s knockout of Jonathan Goulet at UFC Fight Night 3, in which Mario Yamasaki rushes in to save the starched Canadian at the four-second mark. So why don’t we ever hear about it? Well, the timekeeper effed up and reported the official time of the stoppage as 11 seconds. And that’s still how they have the time listed on and Sherdog. Duffee may have given us one of the most fearsome Octagon debuts since Tank Abbott, but at the very least his "record" should have an asterisk next to it…

Oh Goulet... he's like the Keith Jardine of 170: always on the wrong end of the highlight reel clip.

i was watching this fight earlier today cause i just bought the best of fight night dvd for 5 bucks and there was no timer at the bottom of the screen so i timed it myself and i had mario waving off the fight at six seconds.

also, goulet looks like one of those guys from the audition portion of "so you think you can dance" who ate shit trying to breakdance. yeah i watch it, big whoop wanna fight about it?

I think it's worth mentionning that all of the 24 fights of Tank Abbott end in the very first round.Probably a record...

In a related story, an Escort out of Vegas claims that Hague's "Afterparty" didnt last 7 seconds either.
