Arman Tsarukyan made the fastest KO win at UFC on ESPN 52 after defeating Beneil Dariush within 64 seconds.

This Saturday, Tsarukyan and Dariush fought in the main event at Moody Center in Austin, Texas. It was one of the event’s main highlights, as it would determine the future of each fighter’s career in the lightweight division.

Needless to say, Tsarukyan made the forward move after making Dariush unconscious in Round 1. The young fighter delivered a right hand and followed it with a knee and another right hand. The victor then sent three more right hands to Dariush, who was already on the canvas, causing the veteran to black out and the referee to intervene and call the bout.

This victory puts “Ahalkalakets” in the lightweight title conversation, which could soon push him upward in the UFC ranking. It gives the Armenian-Russian fighter his three-fight winning streak as many continue to view him as one of the rising stars in the lightweight division.

As for Dariush, the defeat gives him a two-fight losing skid. It also comes as the fighter recently started pondering about his retirement. According to the No. 4-ranked lightweight fighter, he has two “requirements” to tell him when it is time to quit. One of them includes “young guys start outworking” him.
