UFC On Fox ten kicked off with a bang when Nikita Krylov shocked Walt Harris with a quick TKO win in the first round to kick of the fight card.

He finished the fight in just 25 seconds.

He said after the fight this:

“We were really working hard to win this fight, so I was ready,” Krylov said through an interpreter after the win, which was the sixth-fastest knockout in the history of the UFC’s heavyweight division.

Krylov is 16-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC earns his first octagon win with the impressive KO. While on the other hand Harris (5-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC)has yet to find a win inside the octagon.

Jake Ellenberger will now fight Tarec Saffiedine at UFC 172, headlined by a highly anticipated title tilt between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira on April 26 at Baltimore Arena. The Ellenberger-Saffiedine match-up sees the man ranked #5 against the #9 welterweight, making this a bout with big title implications.

UFC Singapore was the first site host the Jake Ellenberger vs. Tarec Saffiedine match-up, but the former suffered a hamstring injury which forced him to pull out. He was replaced by tough South Korean Hyun Gyu-Lim, who looked very impressive in his last bout coming into the fight in a first round knockout over Pascal Krauss. He showed his grittiness when fighting ex-Strikeforce champ Saffiedine, but ultimately lost a hard-fought decision after a barrage in the later stages of the fifth round.
