At UFC Vegas 21, the 28-year-old prospect “Semi the Jedi” opened the show with a bang! Literally… Semelsberger’s 16 second KO over Jason Witt is the fastest finish in the young prospects’ career.
The Semelsberger 16 Second KO!

Now riding a five-fight winning streak, many might wonder what’s next for this exciting stud. “Semi the Jedi” debuted in the UFC at UFC Vegas 7, against Carlton Minus. Semelsberger would win via decision, almost the opposite of what we witnessed tonight with the Semelsberger 16 second KO.
Jason Witt is now 1-2 in the UFC. With a loss to Takashi Sato via ground and pound TKO, and his lone win over Cole Williams via an arm-triangle choke submission.
UFC Vegas 21 Overview
UFC Vegas 21 is being held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. There has been no finish to date that rivals that of the Semelsberger 16 second KO. The card is headlined by Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad. A matchup that pits the British superstar “Rocky” Edwards coming off an almost 2-year absence from fighting against Belal “Remember the Name” Muhammad.
Muhammad is making the quick turn-around after having only fought a month ago at UFC 258, where he was victorious over Dhiego Lima via decision. The co-main event features two featherweight’s who are almost carbon copies of each other skill-wise, in Dan Ige vs Gavin Tucker.
Before that loss to Calvin Kattar at UFC Fight Island 1, Dan Ige was on a big run. It’s ironic for Kattar, as he outclassed Ige on the feet, then got outclassed on the feet himself by Max Holloway on UFC on ABC 1.
Tucker, on the other hand, is the older fighter who is on a big run himself. Coming into this matchup he is on a three fight win streak!
