Abus Magomedov won his middleweight contest against Dustin Stoltzfus in a lightning-fast 19 seconds on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 209. Magomedov knocked out Stoltzfus with a front kick to the face and a series of punches.
After not fighting since December 2020, Magomedov (25-4-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was stunned by the outcome of his UFC debut.
“I’m very happy for my debut, that I finally get the chance to fight here,” Magomedov said.
“I can’t say. I don’t have words to describe what I feel. I’m just happy.”
“Of course, this is why I work all my life,” Magomedov said.
“Everybody knows UFC is the biggest organization in the world. For me personally, it’s like Olympics. There is nothing more. I know around the world everyone look at the UFC, and it was a little bit pressure of course. But I’m a long time in this business, and I know how to manage it.”
