UFC 210 is underway as we speak and the prelims are firing on all cylinders with a bunch of hard fought matches and now this 21 second knockout care of Long Island native and NCAA champ Gregor Gillespie. The lightweight Gillespie was matched up against Andrew Holbrook and ran right through the 12-1 fighter in seconds, catching him with a right hook that dropped Holbrook and then finishing his stunned opponent off with strikes on the ground.
This is Gillespie’s second win in the UFC but first via knockout. Before coming to the big show, he split his other six finishes equally between submissions and knockouts, so we imagine we’re only going to see more highlight finishes from him in the future.
