The highlight-reel knockout was enough to for Williams to earn 'Performance of the Night' honors and a $50,000 bonus.
The fight against Alhassan was just Khaos Williams' second in the UFC. In his promotional debut at UFC 247, Williams needed less time to get the job done, knocking out Alex Morono in just 27 seconds.
Incidentally, Morono is Alhassan's teammate and training partner.
While Alhassan himself is no stranger to quick knockouts - having secured 10 first-round finishes in his professional MMA career - Williams came into the fight with a history of scoring quick stoppages as well.
Obviously, Williams did not disappoint, putting Alhassan away in just 30 seconds.
The quick knockout has also turned Williams into one of the UFC's newest rising stars. With his newfound popularity, Williams is getting media coverage of all sorts, and now he's being asked to make boxing predictions as well.
Speaking to The Schmo, Khaos Williams turned boxing expert and gave his predictions on the upcoming Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight:
“Man that’s a great fight. I got to go with Mike though, I really wanna see Mike win. I know Roy Jones, just had a fight not too long ago, a few years back if I'm not mistaken, but I’m pretty sure that Mike got it, man. Mentally I just think he is a different breed, that’s Mike Tyson," Khaos Williams said.
