Todd_DuffeeUFC newcomer Todd Duffee had as successful an Octagon as could possibly be hoped for, and sent a direct message to the rest of the heavyweights currently occupying the UFC’s heavyweight division in the process.

An honor previously held by both James “The Sandman” Irvin and Don “The Predator” Frye was bested by a mere second this evening as the American Top Team trained Duffee brutalized Tim Hague in record time during the prelims of  UFC 102.

Irvin had finished off Houston Alexander at the eight second mark previously, while Frye had recorded the same time in a bout with Thomas Ramirez contested in the developmental days of the UFC.

Duffee dropped Hague with a hard straight punch right out of the gate and followed his fallen prey to the canvas where he unleashed a flurry of punches, bringing a halt to the one sided beatdown just seconds after it began.

Five wins, five knockouts, and the quickest KO in UFC history make Duffee a big man to keep a close eye on in the future.
