The American fighter Billy Quarantillo finished a fight seven seconds into the third round with a textbook punch that made his opponent face-plant the floor.

Quarantillo fought Kyle Nelson in a featherweight match that opened the main card on the UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill event at the UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Quarantillo had built a slight edge on the judges' scorecards heading into the third, having out-struck and out-landed Nelson in both rounds, with greater success on takedowns, too.

But to ensure he took the decision away from the judges, Quarantillo hit Nelson with a masterclass one-two punch combination.

Mere seconds into the round, Quarantillo closed the gap, threw a light jab to measure the distance between himself and his target, and then followed the lead punch with a straight right hand so heavy that Nelson could only crumple to the canvas.

The referee had seen enough — Quarantillo had won.
