UFC star makes history with fastest finish on debut

Kevin Croom took just 31 seconds to submit Roosevelt Roberts at a Fight Night in Las Vegas, making history for the fastest ever finish by a lightweight debutant in the UFC.

Croom has fought in Bellator and Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA), but made a bang on his introduction to the UFC as he wasted no time dismantling his opponent.

A vicious left hook floored Roberts 16 seconds into the fight and Croom secured top position before Roberts worked his way back onto his feet.

But Croom tightened his grip in a guillotine choke and dragged his rival down to the canvas, then against the cage, forcing Roberts to tap out.

Croom's win is the fastest finish for a debuting fighter in UFC lightweight history (31 seconds), per @ESPNStatsInfo https://t.co/acIAFbEpLU

Croom’s effort was a highlight of a preliminary card filled with early finishes. Sabina Mazo defeated Justine Kish in the third round via a rear-naked choke, Jalin Turner submitted Brok Weaver in the second round of their fight and Alexander Romanov’s arm triangle took care of Roque Martinez.
