Dana White is going to look into the Fastest KO thing

Chan Sung Jung’s 7 second knockout of Mark Hominick has flared up an old debate on who actually scored the fastest knockout in UFC history. Officially, Jung’s KO ties Todd Duffee’s knockout of Tim Hague at UFC 102 for the fastest knockout. But back in 2006 Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig knocked Jonathan Goulet out in 4 seconds. Unfortunately for him, the timekeeper wasn’t quite so quick and marked the fight ending at 0:11 seconds.

Ludwig filed a complaint with the Nevada State Athletic Commission to get things fixed, which has got him absolutely nowhere. But now it sounds like he may have a new ally in the fight. From an interview Ariel Helwani had with Dana White:

DW: To be honest with you, I don’t know all the details on that. What are the details, do you know?

AH: Basically he was out and they stopped it late with timing and whatnot and it should have been a 4 second KO.

DW: Yeah? So you’ve timed it and you know it’s 4 seconds.

AH: Me and the rest of the MMA community. I know Duane has timed it many times

DW: So it was 4 seconds? Everyone timed it and it was 4 seconds?

AH: Unofficially, but officially it’s longer than that.

DW: Then I’ll see what I can do. I’m on it.

Kinda sounds like the UFC knew about it but just erred on the side of Bang being full of shit. But when figuring out if a guy is in the right or wrong is as simple as taking out a stopwatch and spending 4 seconds watching a fight, you’d think someone would have bothered to look into it by now.

    Oh Ryan.

    All 3 Canadians. 1 from the Montreal area. Oh boiiiiii..

    It’s Ludwig for sure. The zombie guy second.

    Shit’s funny sometimes. I hope Bang gets the overturn :)

    Ludwig was an early stoppage

    they had Keith Kizer on Inside MMA the other day specifically to talk about the Ludwig KO time being offically changed.  He said it’s not possible, that there are no guidelines set up that allow you to go back and correct issues with timing at past events… or something lke that.  He definitely said there wasn’t anything that you can do about it, but Duane has the “unofficial” fastest KO.



    which is confirmed by clicking the link in the fucking article lol.

    Back then, they said there’s nothing in the statute or the regulations that allows it to be changed, and that was pretty much the end of it,” Kizer said. “I don’t know if anything’s different now, but I want to see.

    I guess he did check back and there wasn’t shit to be done because the interview is more recent than that article.

    seems like all keith would have to do is say hey lets look at this and change the time…. he runs the fucking place.

  • CAP

    Kizer can seem like such a pud sometimes. A lot of these rule changes seem like no brainers yet the commissions struggle to get anything done.

  • elitemmaclothing

    CAP I agree totally!! Its just dumb founding that the commissions can’t get together on a single thing to change it for the better! Baffles me!!!

  • CAP

    I know right!!!

  • P W

    Subtle, elitemmaclothig, subtle.


    The time keeper fucked up? Again? I guess the only consistency you can find in the UFC is that of its incompetence.
