Every fighter has their go-to moves, especially specialists within certain martial arts disciplines. Their own signature styles can lead to spectacular finishes. Whether it’s a scary-good rear-naked choke that fighters just can’t seem to avoid once going to the ground or crazy power in a straight left hand that has dropped even granite-chinned fighters with ease, each fighter has a particular finishing move or sequence. Moves that have stuck in fan’s minds and come to define and describe their careers within the cage.

For UFC Vegas 17 we will take a look at some fighters with only a few (5 or less) fights in the UFC, rather than those fighters that are long-time UFC veterans with a bunch of finishes with the promotion.

Khaos Williams is a fighter that posses dynamite in his hands. Five of the six KO/TKO’s in Khaos’ pro career have come in the very first round. And like the last time fans saw Khaos grace the octagon, he usually gets the KO quick with three of those TKO/KO finishes coming inside of 30 seconds!

Khaos’ second fight in the UFC and his most recent, against Adubl Razak Alhasssan, beautifully displayed just how fast a punch from “The Oxfighter” can separate his opponent from consciousness.

Khaos has a huge test ahead of him in the form of the ultra experienced, and equally as athletic, Michel Pereira at UFC Vegas 17. Because of this, a finish might not be in the cards for either fighter, but this scrap is sure to be an amazing fight that will keep fans on the edge of their seats for its entire duration. However long that may be.
