The fight was one of the fastest knockouts in UFC history but not the fastest. It is tied for the second fastest knockout.
The first round began. They touched gloves. Irvin landed a Superman punch at four fifty-five and dropped Alexander and pounded with two or three punches and it was over. Houston was trying to say he was alright, but he was out on his feet. They clapped gloves together as the crowd booed uproariously. Houston was shaking his head and shrugging. In the replay though, it showed Alexander landing two hard shots and Alexander going limp and then an instant later, Irvin walking away shooting a gun at Alexander. Alexander wanted a rematch, he said he had been hit harder by his kids than those punches. He said it was 'crap'.
