UFC 290 produced history
On tonight’s prelim card Denise Gomes made a heck of a statement. On the six second mark of the fight Gomes clocked Yazmin Jauregui with a right hook that immediately sent Jauregui back-peddling. Gomes followed up with the same punch, sending her opponent to the canvas. She followed and landed a rock hard ground strike and swarmed as Jauregui tried to make it to her feet. The ref saw enough and waved the contest off at the 20 second mark.
The win is a new record for fastest KO in the history of the UFC’s strawweight division.
The win gives Gomes three wins in the UFC Octagon (including her Contender Series debut). Prior to this win she beat Bruna Brasil by second round TKO.
