The Vanilla Gorilla


Lasts 48 seconds in UFC debut
June 27, 2020
Witt lost to Takashi Sato via TKO (punches) at 0:48 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
In for Ramiz Brahimaj on a little over 24 hours notice, Witt's maiden voyage in the UFC lasted all of 48 seconds. He ate one massive one-two combination from Sato and was never able to recover. It didn't help matters that referee Chris Tognoni forced Witt to absorb a good half dozen additional unnecessary shots before calling off the bout. Witt will almost certainly get another shot with the company due to his willingness to "save" this bout, but not much shouldn't be expected from the 33-year-old Missouri native.
