Duane “Bang” Ludwig received an amazing Christmas gift, wrapped in the text of a Tweet from Dana White.
At UFC 102, Todd Duffee became the record holder of the fastest knockout in the UFC after he defeated Tim Hague in a mere seven seconds. Just over two years later, UFC featherweight Chan Sung Jung tied the record after he knocked out Mark Hominick in exciting fashion. While Duffee and Hominick held the record, Duane Ludwig was fighting to become the record holder himself… but he wasn’t fighting in the octagon. This time he was fighting with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
At UFC Fight Night 3 on January 16th, 2006, Duane Ludwig knocked out Jonathan Goulet in what was recorded as an eleven second bout. However, the video below shows that the referee called the fight off four seconds in! The Nevada State Athletic Commission recorded it wrong, and Ludwig opened a case with them in effort to get the record that was rightfully his. On Christmas Eve, he received a tweet from Dana White.
Dana White: “@DUANEBANGCOM @ufc and for x mas you have the fastest KO in UFC history and it will be changed ASAP”
