The Man Responsible for the Fastest Knockout in Professional MMA History Is Making His UFC Debut on Saturday

On May 5th, 2006, Canadian welterweight Chris Clements (1-1 at the time) met a first-time fighter named Lautaro Tucas at TKO 25 in Montreal. Putting his lack of experience on full display, Tucas opened the fight by skipping madly across the ring at Clements, his arms draped at his sides. Clements loaded up a right straight and immediately knocked Tucas out cold.

The stoppage was recorded at 0:03 of round 1 — the first three-second knockout in MMA history, establishing a record that has yet to be broken in professional competition. (In case you’re wondering, Kid Yamamoto’s famous flying knee was officially marked as four seconds, and the Harris/Fuller fake-tap backfire KO was recorded as five seconds, even though they both seemed to end just as immediately as Clements vs. Tucas.)

Tucas never fought again, but Clements — now 10-4 with all of his wins by KO/TKO — continued to compete in Canada, and is finally making his Octagon debut this Saturday at UFC 145 in Atlanta. Currently riding a four-fight win streak that includes stoppages of UFC vets Rich Clementi and Jonathan Goulet, Clements will be part of UFC 145′s Facebook prelims broadcast, facing off against Keith Wisniewski (28-13-1, 0-2 UFC), the Indiana-based journeyman who’s perhaps most famous for getting his arm snapped by Shinya Aoki.

After the jump: Two more examples of Clements’s freaky power.

Damn, Jonathan Goulet is pretty much a 1 trick pony. That trick being: Get hit - go to sleep. But the song was a jam playing in the background of that clip, like a mix of Phil Collins and Matthew Sweet.

Wow, that Aoki arm snap was nasty...I was thinking it was that chicken wing arm snap...then again, I'm sure Aoki has snapped more limbs than Paul Harris

Blasphemy! You better check under your bed tonight before you go to sleep and you better pray that Paul Harris is not waiting for you ready to pounce.

Blasphemy!
The12ozCurls- April 18, 2012 at 8:10 am
I retract my "Blasphemy!" on the grounds that J. Spaceman may serve me a retraction notice on the grounds of plagarism. I apologize to all parties involved for I didn't check the hidden comments prior to typing my response. Don't taze me bro!
J. Spaceman- April 18, 2012 at 10:23 am
The claim that Mr. Spaceman would issue a retraction notice on the grounds of plagiarism is outrageous in the extreme. Indeed, in the verified complaint we are presently preparing for Mr. Spaceman’s signature upon his return from space, Mr. Spaceman expressly states under oath that at no time in the history of his association with Cage Potato has he ever issued a retraction notice on the grounds of plagiarism.

He has dickpunched a motherfucker though.

That was fucking awesome - legit lol. Wasn't it dicknailed though?
J. Spaceman- April 18, 2012 at 12:02 pm
You try talking to your buddies about getting dicknailed and watch how fast you turn it to dickpunch!
The12ozCurls- April 18, 2012 at 12:41 pm
I'm just gonna drop the "dick" all together. Wait, . . . . that didn't cum out right. . . . . I meant . . . . . shit, now I'm just digging a hole that I can't get out of. Fuck it - this thread is dead anyway besides you and me. lol
