#12 Duane Ludwig’s fastest KO in UFC history vs. Jonathan Goulet
Ex-UFC commentator Michael Goldberg was often guilty of embarrassing himself on air with his fumbles and tacky, perfunctory exclamations. But this time, he switched it up and gave the crowd’s snickers more sting by calling Jonathan Goulet the (then) #2 Welterweight in Canada, behind the legendary GSP.
Exactly six seconds before he was knocked out by Duane Ludwig, who was returning to the octagon after two losses on the trot.
Ludwig’s record-speed KO still stands untouched in the UFC, but it was only after he hung up his gloves that he truly came into his own. Bang’s ingenuity was invaluable in Team Alpha Male being named Gym of the Year in 2013 and he was honoured as Coach of the Year for 2013 and 2014. His name will certainly be engraved in a list of the greatest MMA coaches of all time.
Jonathan Goulet retired in 2010 after an up and down career(23-12-1) that counts two UFC Fight of the Night awards. The graffiti-haired Canadian was known for using his frizzies as a banner for his sponsors and his cool but incongruous nickname, “The Road Warrior”.
He was labelled that because he used to accept and travel to fights on very short notice, often without trainers or cornermen.Published 09 Feb 2017, 17:34 IST
