Hayisaer Maheshate’s UFC debut was something special.
The Chinese fighter made a huge statement Saturday at UFC 275, putting away Steve Garcia in violent fashion on the preliminary card at Singapore Indoor Stadium. The official stoppage came at the 1:14 mark of Round 1.
It was a wild fight from start to finish.
Both Maheshate (7-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and Garcia were hot right off the bat. The two traded shots and were on full offensive mode. After a couple of chaotic exchanges, Garcia rushed in on Maheshate. It was then that Maheshate countered with a powerful straight right hand while backpedaling as Garcia rushed in. The shot immediately sent Garcia face first to the canvas. No additional shots were needed.
