There are no breaking news at the moment

Let’s take a look back at the latest knockouts and submissions in 5-round matches at UFC – one of the most frequently overlooked records on MMA.

In UFC history, the achievement of the fastest knockout stages in the tournament has always been the attention of the audience. For example, the flying pillow takes only 5 seconds to put Jorge Masvidal on the star line at UFC. Or Conor McGregor with the fastest title match in history when defeating Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds. They all show the ability to catch habits, power as well as a little extremely rare luck.

However, there is another record that few people pay attention to. Those were the latest finishing phases of 5-match matches. Unlike the fastest KO phase, this record is not only lucky but also requires athletes with physical strength, absolute alertness to go through 5 rounds and take chances at the last moments.

Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington (TKO, 4:10 seconds)

The latest event to witness the latest TKO phase is the confrontation between defending champion Welterweight Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. The match of 2 wrestlers but there was no knockdown during 5 rounds.

Perhaps, because they were too afraid of the opponent’s forte, both Usman and Covington turned UFC 245’s main match into a relentless duel. Nearly 800 attacks were launched with more than 300 hits from both, the endurance race only stopped when Usman made a knockdown and ended Covington in 4 minutes 10 seconds of the 5th period.

Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson (Submission, 4:56 seconds)

To talk about full-time matches, it is impossible to ignore boxer nicknamed “the heart of the lion” Frankie Edgar. Famous for his hard-working, persistent style that always pressures to compensate for his small body, Frankie Edgar also owns the latest submission record for the tournament as of 2014.

Dominating Cub Swanson with his key-locking skill, everyone thought that Edgar would own a 5-point victory at UFC Fight Night 57 November 22, 2014. However, the struggle at the end of the match of “ Cubby ”forced Edgar to unleash the necklock – bringing the match back to submission in 4 minutes 56 seconds.
