UFC 260: Jamie Mullarkey unloads first round bomb to earn first UFC win

Jamie Mullarkey opened the UFC 260 main card with a bang, unloading a left hand bomb that left Khama Worthy floored.

A mere 40 seconds into the first round, the Central Coast MMA product stepped inside, feinted with his right hand and shut down Worthy’s central nervous system with a devastating left hand.

Six seconds later, it was all over, with Mullarkey nabbing his first UFC win and extending his run to 11 straight finishes in his professional wins.

Mullarkey moves to 13-4 with the win. Worthy falls to 16-8.

Despite finding himself on the end of two losses in as many UFC fights, the New South Welshman was extremely confident of getting the job done.

“The pressure is there but the pressure is always there, so I’m not really overthinking it," he told Sporting News.

"In my mind I’m 1-1 in the UFC, I think I won that last fight (against Fares Ziam). Every fight is the biggest fight of your life so the pressure is always going to be there it's just how you deal with it.

"I’m very confident. I think this is a really good fight for me.

"Styles make fights and this kind of a fighter - I think it’s going to be fireworks and I see myself getting my hand raised."
