Remember the name: Robelis Despaigne. 

The giant 35-year-old taekwondo practitioner, a bronze medalist at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, has inked a deal with the UFC, it has been confirmed — with his signing coming just minutes after he scored what was his fourth professional win this past weekend at a Fury FC event in Houston, Texas.

The crushing knockout win was officially registered at 6-seconds though could easily have been earlier had the referee been slightly quicker, and now means that the Cuban fighter’s last three wins, all of which were knockouts, have come in a combined 21-seconds, according to records listed on Wikipedia. And now, despite just making his MMA debut in June of last year, he is now an official member of the UFC roster and his signing was announced to the crowd just ten minutes after the bout ended.

At 35, one would expect him to be tested sooner rather than later in the Octagon — but for now, you can check out his handiwork below thanks to Caposa on Twitter.
