By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Jordan Leavitt has made a memorable first impression. He made his UFC debut on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Leavitt knocked out the veteran Matt Wiman just 20 seconds into the fight. He picked Wiman up and then took him to his corner.

Once near his corner, Leavitt slammed Wiman to the mat of the Octagon. Wiman was out cold following the slam.

Leavitt put his arm near the throat of Wiman for additional impact. Thankfully, after several minutes of being down, Wiman was able to get up. 

“I don’t plan on losing anytime soon,” Leavitt said. “I plan on giving a few more highlight reel finishes before someone can stop me.”

“The Monkey King” has improved to 7-0 in his MMA career. He was able to get his first UFC win in his native town, as he also fights out of Las Vegas.
