UFC middleweight, Abdul Razak Alhassan, came off a three-fight losing skid on Saturday at UFC Vegas 35 with a 17 second knockout against Alessio Di Chirico becoming the seventh fighter in UFC history to earn three or more knockouts in less than a minute.
Alhassan now has 11 first-round knockouts in his career over the likes of Niko Price, Sabah Homasi, Charlie Ward, etc. He’s coming off a three-fight losing streak to Mounir Lazzez, Khaos Williams, and Jacob Malkoun. This is Alhassan’s second fight in 2021 and we shouldn’t expect to see him again until 2022, as he typically fights only twice a year. This 17-second leg kick KO earned him a $50,000 ‘Performance of the Night’ fight bonus.
