UFC Fight Night: Kara-France vs. Albazi is in progress from the dusty APEX facility in Las Vegas, and longtime MMA veteran Jim Miller just picked up his 25th promotional win with a 23-second knockout of short-notice newcomer, Jesse Butler. At 39-years-of-age, Jim is sitting with the second most finishes in UFC history at 17, and seems to still have plenty left in the tank.

Jim Miller doing the damn thing

The fight started and Butler went right at Miller with hard combos. Miller remained composed and pressed forward behind his own boxing. Butler swung wild, then a hefty counter left hand from Jim knocked him out, but the Octagon cage was holding him up. Miller was right there bringing a followup left haymaker on an already out Jesse to lay him out on the canvas with a leg folded backwards. This is by far the most violent finish of Jim’s lengthy career. HOLY SMOKES!!
