Quinlan brought an undefeated record and reputation for knockouts into his UFC debut, and both are alive and well after his performance! He started off a bit awkwardly, looking a touch tense in early exchanges. When Witt scored an early takedown, it seemed like an upset might be brewing.

Instead, Quinlan worked his way back up and settled down a bit. When Witt tried to step forward into a power left kick, Quinlan stood his ground and fired back with a massive left hook. Witt went down hard and didn’t wake up for a while — no follow up shots were necessary.
