Lightweight prospect Terrance McKinney cashed in on a huge short-notice Octagon debut earlier tonight (Sat., June 12, 2021) at UFC 263 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, when he stopped veteran Matt Frevola via knockout (punches) just seven seconds into the first round.
McKinney was filling in on a few days notice but he did compete little more than one week ago at LFA 109. It didn’t take McKinney long to find his range and land a beautiful combination that sent Frevola crashing to the canvas. McKinney followed up with a few insurance shots before the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

This is one of the best ways to make a UFC debut and McKinney did it against one of the tougher guys at 155 pounds. The young prospect did injure his knee in celebration after the quick stoppage so hopefully it’s not too serious and McKinney can book another Octagon appearance in 2021.
