At Shark Fights 2 in December 2008, Shannon Ritch ended John Wood’s night in 15 seconds with a technique that pro-wrestling fans will immediately recognize as a "superkick." Apparently it works in real life, too. This was the last in a four-fight win streak that Shannon had going in 2008, and if you know anything about The Cannon’s career, you know what a big deal that is. Fun fact: Ritch’s last 26 fights have ended in the first round; he won 10 of those fights.
Picture it — the third Bas Rutten Invitational tournament, June 1999. Jens Pulver (2-1 at the time) meets up with a 16-year-old Joe Stevenson (2-0); things do not go well for Joe Daddy. Stevenson crumbles after the first left uppercut landed by Pulver, and the fight is stopped in just 38 seconds, which is a good thing since Jens jacks his hand up pretty badly in the process. Pulver would make his UFC debut — a draw against Alfonso Alcarez at UFC 22 — just three months later.
