UFC NEWS – NSAC Denies Ludwig Fastest Knockout Appeal

“The ruling is that it stays at 11.There’s no legal avenue to overturn it… I timed it myself with a stopwatch. It was eight seconds. Officially, it’s got to stay at 11 seconds, but unofficially, it could be at eight. If you use a stopwatch, from the time the fight starts to the time that Mario grabs Duane, it’s about 7.9 seconds. Why the official timekeeper had it at 11, I don’t know. But it wasn’t 11, and it wasn’t four, either… [The UFC] can say whatever they want. Sounds like they want to be the WBC for some reason.”

We reported this past Monday that UFC president Dana White confirmed to the world via twitter that Duane Ludwig’s 2006 knockout victory over Jonathan Goulet would be recorded as the fastest knockout in UFC history.

However, officially, he was unable to deliver on his statement.

In this featured quote from The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s, Keith Kizer, they have opted against changing the time on the official records. That means that while the UFC is free to stake claim to whatever they want, the commission that sanctioned the fight will not change the official time stamp on the bouts conclusion.

So officially, Ludwig’s knockout will not be recognized as the fastest in UFC history. That distinction is still held by Todd Duffee and Chan-Sung Jung for their 7-second KO victories.

    Good, because it’s not a 4 second ko… the people who keep watching that synced video trying to say Ludwigs was quickest are in denial. Pretty sad even Duane himself thinks it is even after seeing that shit. Learn to count kids.

    Yeah my brain had a hard time trying to fit the knockout into 4 seconds aswell ,,but i will say after i watched it about 20 odd times my dilusion was starting to come around! But reality won out and it aint 4 seconds

    This happened in 2006. And the people that get paid to do this kind of stuff most likely make over 100k a year. Lazy fckers this shit could’ve been resolved in 2006 not 6 years later.

    You people are high. The damn “official” timeclock shows the ref moving in to stop it at 4 seconds. This was a 5 second KO at worst case, not that it even matters. Dude deserves what is owed to him. He finished the fight at 4:56-4:55 area and should be notated for it officially.

  5. Keith Kizer is the bigges scumbag i hate that POS. Gvie the guy what he deserves like the poster above me said. thats a 5 second KO at worst just cause the clock guy was grabbing Kizers balls and was late to clock the fight dosent mean the guy should be robbed from his history making moment.

    bottom line is nsac doesn’t wanna admit fault and if they change the official time it
    means somebody fucked up. whoever was in charge of the clock was prob checking his phone or scratching his balls cuz im sure he didnt expect the fight to end so quickly. bottom line, somebody fell asleep at the wheel.
