Fans witnessed some incredible history in Las Vegas on Saturday as UFC Fight Night got off to a violent and devastating start.
For the first time in UFC history a card started with three-straight fights that ended in under a minute.
‘NO INTENT’: Boxer gets off doping ban with sex excuse
Christian Aguilera kicked off proceedings with a barrage against Anthony Ivy.
The referee was forced to step in and save Ivy after just 59 seconds as Aguilera unloaded with a flurry of massive punches.
Tyson Nam then continued the crazy scenes as he turned out Zarrukh Adashev’s lights with a huge right hook.
Adashev fell straight backwards after being clocked by Nam, out cold on his feet after just 32 seconds.
Nam followed up with another massive shot as Adashev lay motionless before the referee called the fight off.
“I got outpointed my first two fights — not out-classed,” Nam said afterwards.
“When people want to fight me, exciting things will happen.
“I think No. 10 right now is Matt Schnell, so I’m going to put him on blast.”
Julia Avila then made UFC history as she recorded the third-straight victory in under 60 seconds.
Similar to Aguilera’s win, Avila was pummelling Gina Mazany so hard that the referee had to jump in, ending the fight in an astonishing 22 seconds.
The first three fights on the card took a total of 113 seconds, leaving fans gobsmacked.

Jessica Eye misses weight before main event
Jessica Eye (15-7, 3 KOs) failed to make weight Friday for her matchup against Cynthia Calvillo (8-1-1, 2 KOs) and must forfeit 25 percent of her purse for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night main event.
Eye outpointed Viviane Araújo for a unanimous decision win in her last fight at UFC 245 in December, a fight for which she also failed to make weight.
Calvillo is coming off a majority draw against Marina Rodriguez in December and - you guessed it - also failed to make weight for the fight.
