UFC 290 Video: Knock out! Aguilar smashes Ross in 17 seconds

UFC 290 got its first highlight reel finish when flyweight Jesus Aguilar smoked Shannon Ross with an overhand right.

By: Bloody Elbow | 1 month ago

The UFC 290 card is live right now from the T-Mobile Arena in Las, Vegas, NV and we’ve already got a killer KO highlight. In the second fight on the early prelims card, Jesus Aguilar only needed 17 seconds to finish Shannon Ross with a brutal overhand right.

UFC 290 off to a banging start

UFC 290’s first knockout was almost one for the record books as it is the second-fastest KO in UFC flyweight division history. But Dustin Ortiz’ record remains safe. Aguilar caught Ross backing straight up and landed a smashing overhand right on the nose. Let’s look at the action:

Aguilar came in off a loss to Tatsuro Taira at UFC Vegas 68 and picked up his first UFC win tonight. He’s now 9-2 as a professional. Ross drops to 13-8 with his second straight loss and his third in the promotion.

Bloody Elbow staffers overwhelmingly picked Aguilar

Subscribers to the Bloody Elbow Substack shouldn’t have been surprised by the outcome since the staff overwhelmingly picked Aguilar with only two writers picking Ross. Although no one had him winning by KO, much less in 17 seconds.
