UFC Fight Night 232 video: Jeka Saragih slumps Lucas Alexander with 91-second knockout

LAS VEGAS – Jeka Saragih got his first octagon victory Saturday at UFC Fight Night 232, and he did it just 91 seconds.

Saragih (14-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) got the eighth opening-round finish of his career when he pounced on Lucas Alexander (8-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) and caught him with a big punch that led to a knockdown and fight-ending blows in the featherweight contest, which took place at the UFC Apex.

Check out the replay of the stoppage blow (via X):

Saragih entered the fight as a nearly 4-to-1 betting underdog against the dangerous Brazilian Alexander. He wasn’t having any of the odds, however, and the Indonesian athlete put himself in the UFC win column, which came as the result of much sacrifice.

“This journey is very long for me,” Saragih said through an interpreter during his post-fight interview with Paul Felder. “I spent more time in the United States than I spent with my family this year. I want to thank everyone so much. I’m going to go back home to my village.”
