Rising UFC welterweight contender Khaos Williams delivered one of the most dramatic knockouts of the year on Saturday night in the co-main event of the latest UFC Fight Night card in Las Vegas, Nevada. Williams was a significant underdog on the MMA betting market to fellow knockout artist Abdul Razak Alhassan, but it only took one big punch for the rising 170-pound star to score the dramatic knockout over his opponent.

After the fight, Williams revealed during his post-fight interview that he gets ready for his fights by listening to rappers Jay-Z and Meek Mill.
Moreover, Williams hopes his huge knockout win on Saturday night at UFC APEX helps him get on both those musical artists’ radars someday soon.
“Shoutout to Jay-Z, shoutout to Meek Mill…y’all are an inspiration to me. I listen to you before all my fights,” Williams said. “One day I hope to meet y’all, do business or something.”

UFC Community Reacts To Khaos Williams
UFC president Dana White told Willaims it was one of the “most vicious” knockouts he’d ever seen in the sport. You can watch a video clip of that exchange below.
Former UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje said, “Brutal knockout there for @khaosOXwilliams #UFCFVegas14”.
UFC middleweight contender Derek Brunson said, “Threw that punch with bad intentions! #UFCVegas14”.
ESPN’s Ariel Helwani posted, “Khaos Williams means business. That was a scary KO, man.”
During his post-fight interview, Williams mentioned he hopes to be included in one of the UFC video games created by EA Sports in the near future.
But Helwani believes Williams should be added right now, so he went right after trying to help make that happen.
But retired UFC champ Daniel Cormier doesn’t seem to agree. Cormier posted, “No!”
ESPN’s Jon Anik likes what he saw from Williams.
Anik posted, “Khaos Williams = sensational. @SportsCenter Top 10 = find a slot! One, done.”
Jay-Z and Meek Mill have yet to respond to Williams and his massive knockout, but Heavy has you covered in case they do.
