Alan Belcher: 53 Seconds
May 26, 2007: It was UFC 71 and this was a not-so-important undercard fight. But who knew it would result in one of the quickest submissions in UFC history when Alan Belcher ended the fight with a guillotine choke on Sean Salmon.
Mark Kerr: 53 Seconds
October 17, 1997: Mark Kerr came into UFC 15 - Collision Course as a fantastic wrestler with an undefeated record. He wasted no time in working Dwayne Cason into a rear naked choke submission just shortly after a super quick KO in his first fight. Total time elapsed for the fight was just 53 seconds and it marked the only and last professional MMA event of Cason's career.
Carlos Newton: 52 Seconds
May 15, 1998: UFC 17 saw the more experienced and much larger Bob Gilstrap get his ass submitted in 52 seconds by Carlos Newton via a triangle choke. Canadian Newton went on to a semi-successful MMA career before retiring. Gilstrap retired two fights later.
Dan Severn: 52 Seconds
December 16, 1994: Dan Severn was minutes away from being choked out by another UFC legend, but during his fight with Marcus Bossett at UFC 4, he performed a quick rear naked choke within 52 seconds.
