Khamzat casually picks up McKee, places him away from his corner, and begins his relentless ground and pound for the next three minutes until the referee steps in. He broke the record that night for the fastest turnaround between UFC wins, claiming a second victory only 10 days after his debut.

Looking forward for his next one, he posted a photo with some friends and Jack Hermansson, Khamzat is a big boy


Diavolo222

Not that big. He's not too muscular or thick. He's the perfect size for a "big" welterweight


study-kaji

yeah the camera angle was bad too…


sinproph

Fastest turnaround ignoring the initial tournaments UFC held.


YaBenZonah

Honestly blow my mind they used to have guys fight like 3-5 times a night. Like what happened if you were in a war and absolutely fucked


avocadohm

Taking this opportunity to remind everyone Kazushi Sakuraba fought Royce Gracie for NINETY goddamn minutes and then went on to fight Igor fucking Vovchanchyn.


frankank

See: Royce Gracie. Won the first 2 TOURNAMENTS (3/3), but on the 2nd tournament, he had to pull out from the 3rd fight, after winning the first 2, because of an injury iirc. Don't how the replacement was chossed but yeah, kinda sucked if it happened, hence why we get months between fights now.


lil_hulkster

> chossed Chosen is the right word to use here mate. Proud of you.


frankank

That's proof I didn't double check myself properly before saving lol thanks

If you couldn’t continue then an alternate would take your place in the next round. Sometimes it was the guy that lost who went through.


VT_Squire

I think this is more of a measure of how the UFC simply didn't have the pace of schedule to do that before. I mean, Ken Shamrock picked up the inaugural superfight title by beating Dan Severn in 1995, then went to Tokyo and defended it in Pancrase 8 days later.


Chocoeclair189

I remember Big John and Jon Anik got into a bit of a back and forth about this. Anik clarified that it is the fastest turnaround in the modern era, while Big Jon complained that the UFC doesnt honor its legends


NawidA

I mean they really don't. Having Anderson Silva's send out be what it was, was incredibly disgraceful.


Chocoeclair189

I agree the UFC does a bad job at it


WNEW

Nothing is sacred in the UFC and that’s the problem


2dank4me3

They don't at all. They often actively shit on them.


MegaSuperUltraThingy

I swear they legit pretend Randy Couture doesn't and has never existed as a human


HonorableJudgeIto

Who is Frank Shamrock?


Bugsmoke

If they don’t retire, they end up being fed to the next guy they want to milk


Recent-Emergency9680

Crazy that McKee went on to beat Pitbull for the Bellator featherweight belt


dpsabados

Unless I’m getting whooshed rn, I think you’re talking about the wrong McKee


Melaniacuckstrump987

You’re getting whooshed bro


akadeo1

now i'm confused on who's wooshing who.


Lakers2020-23Champs

He beat Pitbull, kid pulled off a reverse Michael Jackson.


we_all_gon_die_

Mr. Worldwide!!


javi_and_stuff

from the 305, just here to remind yall que ese culo bota caca


H1GGS103

JUST LET ME WOOSH BRO


onebritruler

Dont blame you, reddit humour is very elite. Two fighters have the same name, it's comedic genius really. He should open for Brendon Schaub


bucket56

Joke was so elite it actually wouldn't surprise me if that's Schaub's secret burner account. MUHR-DUHR-UHR.


Recent-Emergency9680

Howdy due foundout Bubba? Did you axe jay?


OldHispanicGuy

You should personally make sure he's held responsible for making a joke that wasn't up to your standard


johnnyboi5322

And we all know AJ McKee is a killer at 145 but Khamzat just came in there and mauled him. There's just a different talent level between the UFC and other organizations - Joe Rogan, probably


GlitteringShirt6747

Remember when khamzat was the hottest prospect? Pepperidge farm remembers…


awesarder

Khamzat fought in another promotion at FW?


BeardedJoe123

Any time anywhere bro


MomDiedMacarena

bratha*


agenz899

My mother and me pray for other promotion even!


MelkMan7

Unless it's Luke Rockhold at MW.


bongasaurus_rex

Really hope Khamzat is in a good place. Truly miss him in the cage, homie brings the michel pereira type of hype without the circus act. Hope to see him in early 2022.


tengukaze

You'll be seeing him this year


bongasaurus_rex

Taking a "i'll believe it when i see it" approach.


tengukaze

Yeah very true lol well hopefully this year


RaoulDuke1

hes booked for October 30. If that fight doesnt happen due to any kind of backout by Khamzat I would officially give up on him. So chances are you see him in 2021 or theres nothing to see


survivalmaster1

love letter to khamzat to my dear and loving husband by Anna Frank


spermysquirmy

Hopefully Covid didn’t put a dent in his cardio, literally the only factor that’s keeping me from betting on his next fight. Time will tell.


IFeelItDownInMyPlums

In the John Phillips fight, Khamzat was hitting Phillips with his exposed knuckles to cut up his face. I don't recall seeing anyone else do that before.


OverlyButtered

I’m confused, how would his knuckles get exposed through the gloves? Unless you mean his second knuckles?


IFeelItDownInMyPlums

yea the knuckles that sit right below your fingernails


Throwaway-242424

Sure you don't mean the middle knuckles? More robust and can make a sharper angle.


Critical50

I see a lot of people asking if Khamzat is okay. Hes scheduled to fight Li Jingliang at UFC 267. Im not a big fan of Khamzat, but follow his IG. He posts pretty hard workout sessions constantly. I cant wait to see that eye gouger get smeshed.


3rdWorldBorn

Jingliang is an eye gouger?


Tube1890

IMO worst eye gouge in UFC history. Matthews had permanent eye damage and retired from fighting citing the injury as the main reason.


Wikinger_

He didn't retire lol. He's doing work in the Australian Defence Force and if I recall correctly he's putting that over fighting.


3rdWorldBorn

Fuck man, I didn't even know. I'm gonna enjoy him getting sparked by Chimaev.


Critical50

He literally shoved his fingers in Matthews eyes and then you can see him really put effort into it. Guy should be expelled, IMO. Khamzat seems to watch opponents old fights. I hope hes heard about the eye gouge, and roasts Jingliang. He definitely gave Meerschaert a hard time over being choked out by a lower belt, but I dont know where that happened.


3rdWorldBorn

What a scumbag. Dude should have been banned from all MMA events. I hope Chimaev teaches him a lesson!


LetsTalkDinosaurs

He gouged Jake Matthews pretty good.


3rdWorldBorn

Damn dude. Just heard it was a career ending injury as well. Hope Chimaev teaches him lesson.


SilverAndBlack909

This guys is a mythical figure at this point will he ever fight again ?


kikikza

what a hype train he had, it's a shame sickness had to derail it


daaliida

I just want to see khamzat fight a quality opponent already.


Ryouconfusedyett

that beard is mesmerizing


goodname_

If there were two khamzats in there with mckee it would've gone VERY nasty


sober72826

Why didn’t McKee listen to his corner and “get out of there”? (0:36)


Johnny20022002

I really do hope khazmat made a full recovery and hasn’t been permanently affected by covid.


Marijuana_Guy

Can't wait for the return of evil Khabib.


First-Complaint1817

Is he coming back or still on the sidelines/retired?


M4TTHUN

Both of his wins aged pretty well.


SadatayAllDamnDay

Rhys McKee...not AJ. Rhys got his ass kicked by Alex Morono his last fight.


shrewdy

I'm guessing he was being sarcastic. The John Phillips win has hardly aged well


elviejolin

Conor has a better welterweight resume than Khamzat


vprokopev

Yes, beating legendary welterweights like Diaz and Cerrone.


elviejolin

Exactly!


crumbypigeon

Khamzat v cowboy, book it


fletchdeezle

Why did he carry him back to his corner?


Signum98

To listen to his corner instructions and block the opponent from doing the same


fletchdeezle

I’m dumb I didn’t ever think of that, never noticed it before


HonorableJudgeIto

See also: Matt Hughes v. Frank Trigg


FHRITP69er

Why do you think? To beat his ass infront of his corner lol.


NightEscaper

I want Khamzat to have a super duper run at WW. He can do it all and he is a fellow Muslim so I'm also biased, sorry.


vprokopev

My prediction is r/mma will hate him for the same reason many people here hate Khabib. Dude is from Chechnya, very different culture from what many westerners used to, so a lot of what he will say will be offending people or just lost in translation.


drewly33

I understand a lot of casuals hate khabib for his wrestling heavy style but he is quite loved here. It was not until his recent opinions on mike and aldo that khabib has been getting some hate. Even then he still gets a lot more love than hate imo


vprokopev

Khabib often go controversial. He went against pop concerts in Dagestan and against France president after shootings. I can understand where he is coming from usually but it's also obvious he is not very diplomatic person. He could have said the same things but with a disclaimers of some sort, to not sound like a jerk


pooraxiescholar

feed him to rockhold, let the hype be killed.


aceknighthigh

He's booked vs the Leech. Decent fight but if his wrestling/grappling even halfway lives up to the hype, he should be able to ragdoll Li Jingliang.


vprokopev

Khamzat will probably strike more and more. He got crazy power in his hands. Dude wobbles people with jabs and already has 2 scary KOs against legit fighters in Aliskerov and GM.


jcdulos

Thx for reminding me of the Leech’s nickname. I kept referring to him as the worm. Whoops.


Hyrax__

Straight thavegery. Jiangling is in trouble


ssamiirr

He beat McKee all the way to bellator


survivalmaster1

what do you do when someone pick you up like this and casually walk around with you, dude looked defeated


sweator

Did Chris leben not win twice in 10 days too?


stopshadowbanningme4

pretty much a dog taking his bone to his fave corner


reddit1902

This is the definition of being manhandled!


ksweet98

Super hyped for Khamzat vs Jingliang, should be a fun style clash that ends in an exciting finish


Mjoh23

McKee fans will never bring this up, when hyping him so much.


2dank4me3

He has fans?
