Don't blink! Check out the FASTEST FINISHES in UFC history, featuring Jorge Masvidal, Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey (VIDEO)
The UFC's famed octagon is arguably the most dangerous place in the world of sport, where even highly-trained elite-level fighters can come unstuck in a matter of seconds against the best unarmed fighters on the planet.
The spectacular nature of fights in the UFC is such that you never know quite what to expect, with so many different ways to win, or lose, a fight.
Sometimes, the fights are over almost before they have begun, with one perfectly-placed punch, kick, knee or elbow capable of ending the action in the blink of an eye. Likewise, one false move at close quarters could see you in an inescapable submission predicament that leaves you with no option other than to tap out.
The UFC's latest highlight-reel montage celebrates those blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments from down the years, as fighters have produced spectacular finishes in the opening seconds of their fights.Also on rt.com 'Ben’s still sleeping': Masvidal goads 'bum' Askren after record-breaking KO at UFC 239
