A UFC fighter landed a record-breaking knockout at UFC 263 on June 12, 2021, and then proceeded to injure himself during his celebration.
According to UFC anchor Karyn Bryant, Terrance McKinney earned the fastest KO in the promotion’s lightweight history, finishing Matt Frevola in seven seconds during their early preliminary match. McKinney’s KO is tied for the forth fastest in the UFC, Bryant reported.
After the fight was called off by the referee, McKinney proceeded to climb the Octagon in celebration. When he dropped back down to the canvas, he seemingly hurt his leg. During the broadcast, UFC color commentator Joe Rogan speculated that he “blew out his knee.”

At the time of this writing, it’s unclear what McKinney injured and how serious it is.
Besides the injury, it was a fantastic showing for “T-Wrecks,” who made his promotional debut Saturday night. With the win, McKinney improved his MMA record to 11-3. Frevola’s record fell to 8-3 after he sustained his second loss in a row.

Post-Fight Comments From McKinney
Speaking with the UFC after the fight, McKinney revealed the words of his corner which helped lead to his record-breaking KO.
“I saw he was coming forward so I was just waiting for the time. I saw him step in, my coach said, ‘as soon as you see him step in, hit that one-two’ and I was like bam bam,” McKinney said. “I can’t ask for a better result honestly. I’m so grateful to God and that was freaking sweet.”
McKinney wanted to make a statement in his UFC debut, and he did just that. “Honestly this is probably the calmest I’ve been in any fight. Honestly. I feel like I belong here and I wanted to make a statement.”
“I’m looking to get finishes, get knockouts all year,” McKinney continued. “I want to show people that I’m not just a wrestler, I can stand and bang with the best in the world.”
