As noted by Bloody Elbow, Battle needed just 14 seconds to defeat Gabe Green on the UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs. Almeida undercard.

Battle weathered Green’s early offence as he was pushed back against the cage. Instead of trying to block the blows coming in, he returned fire, knocking out his opponent before celebrating in front of friends and family.

Not Battle’s first quick win

Battle now has a professional record of 10 wins and two losses, with four of those wins and one of those losses coming in the UFC. His 14-second victory isn’t the first time he’s produced a quick finish, though.

As noted by UFC Stats, Battle previously took just 44 seconds to beat Takashi Sato in August 2022. He also won that fight by knockout.

Battle’s chances of gold?

The 29-year-old will have to show more examples of his quick-finishing abilities if he wants to ascend the UFC’s Welterweight rankings.

The division has Leon Edwards as champion and also features talented stars like Kamaru Usman, Colby Covington, Belal Muhammad, Khamzat Chimaev and Gilbert Burns.

Who’s next for Leon Edwards?

Leon Edwards silenced the doubters, defeating Kamaru Usman in their trilogy fight on Saturday night to retain his UFC welterweight championship.

Rocky impressed in his first title defence, winning by a majority decision in front of a packed crowd at the O2 Arena.

Edwards’ win cemented his status as the new king of the welterweight division and has sparked interest in his future plans, Sports Brief noted.
