    Fastest UFC knockout

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-b0_Wy_ass

    the fight starts at about 2:00 into the video

    BROOMFIELD, Colo. Nobody expected the light heavyweight bout between James Irvin and Houston Alexander at Ultimate Fight Night 13 on Wednesday to last long.
    Both men love to brawl and have knockout power in both hands.
    But what happened at the Broomfield Events Center was almost hard to believe. Irvin knocked Alexander down with a right hand and then landed two punches while Alexander was on his back.
    Referee Steve Mazzagatti jumped in just eight seconds in and stopped it to a chorus of boos. It tied the mark for the fastest end to a UFC fight. Don Frye knocked out Thomas Ramirez at UFC 8 on Feb. 16, 1996.
    Alexander wasn't pleased, but Irvin said he simply isn't aware of what had happened.
    "He wasn't even looking at me," Irvin said. "I clipped him and he went down and I looked at his eyes and he was looking off to the right. He was bleeding out of both of his nostrils. He wasn't even looking at me. The third punch when he was down was the best punch of all of them."
    Irvin raced across at the bell and threw a "Superman punch," jumping in the air while throwing the right.
    It connected on the chin, knocking Alexander down. Irvin quickly went for the finish. His first punch missed, landing on the top of Alexander's back. He grazed Alexander with a right to the chin, then landed a hard right to the face.
    That prompted Mazzagatti, who has made a number of controversial stoppages in other fights, to halt it.
    Alexander complained instantly and seemed to be fine seconds after he got to his feet. In the locker room after the bout, he said he'd been hit harder many times.
    "Just give me a chance," Alexander said. "I've been hit hard a lot of times in my life. I was OK. No excuses. I'm a professional. I got caught with a shot, but that's what this is about. But I definitely felt I could go on."
    This marked the third consecutive bizarre finish to an Irvin fight. The Northern California-based light heavyweight won by disqualification over Luis Cane after getting kneed in the head while on the ground at UFC 79 in December, which was the first DQ in a UFc match since 2003; and a freak leg injury brought a halt to his UFC 71 loss to Thiago Silva last May.
    "That's the story of my life," said Irvin. "I just told people I hoped it would be a good fight. Even in my interviews, I told people I didn't want a quick knockout. ... I've knocked people out in three or four of my fights, but it's all been by one shot. But at least I got this win and I can go back and train harder and hopefully get something against some of the big names."

    I don't know Alexander is one tough SOB but they do have to error in favor of fighter safety

    If that fight had not been stopped Irvin would have gotten a full mount and beat on his face like a drum. It was a good stop.

    Ref stopped the fight way to soon, he was back on his feet within seconds. If he was hurt, he would have laid there.

    Agreed. He was flat OUT for a few seconds, you could see his arms locked and pointed straight out, a good sign of him being out. The guy did recover pretty well but only because the other fighter threw 3 punches that glanced off of his face instead of hitting him flush.

    When he would have mounted him he would have smashed his chicklets down his throat.

    Good stop. Bad luck.

    The decision to stop the fight was very controversial, and has received more attention than the lackluster eight second fight itself.

    UFC Referee Steve Mazzagatti has a few controversial fight stops. His refereeing is inconsistent to say the least.

    I happen to live 8 mintues from the Event Center. I also happened to have some VIP passes for that little get together. I also happened to be about 27 feet from the fight in question. He was done and out for a second or two. It was a good stop.

    He snapped out of it quick but I was there and he was in la-la land. JMHO.
