Now that he’s finally in the UFC, Chidi Njokuani isn’t messing around.

Including his appearance on Dana White’s Contender Series, the elbow knockout marked Njokuani’s third consecutive stoppage in the octagon. It took him all of 16 seconds to TKO Marc-André Barriault in his UFC debut in February.
Njokuani, 33, spent three years in Bellator and made an LFA appearance before getting his UFC opportunity. He’s certainly made the most of it so far.
