Khamzat Chimaev ended Kevin Holland in the impromptu co-main event of the UFC 279.
Chimaev submitted Holland with a d'acre choke in the very first round. The fight got stopped in just 2 minutes and 13 seconds.
Chimaev didn't brake a sweat during the fight. The swede absorbed a total zero strikes in that duration.
Khamzat Chimaev was supposed to fight Nate Diaz in the main event but was overweight by almost 8 pounds.
Chimaev seemed not at all concerned about missing the weight. "I don't care. I came here to smash everybody", said Chimaev during the ceremonial weigh-in.
A late Friday card shake-up led to Chimaev fighting Kevin Holland in the co-main event. Meanwhile, Tony Ferguson took Chimaev's place for the main event.
"I am the most dangerous guy here. I gotta come for everyone. I will kill everybody." stoked Chimaev claimed this in the octagon interview.
This is Chimaev's sixth consecutive win since his UFC debut. The fighter from Sweden has established himself as unstoppable force in the UFC circuit.
