Now that's how you create a splash in your UFC debut and set the table for a pay-per-view.
Making his promotional debut as a +650 underdog, Khama Worthy scored a shocking first-round knockout of Devonte Smith in the last prelim bout before the launch of the UFC 241 pay-per-view at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. on Saturday night.
Worthy dropped Smith with a short right uppercut and pounded him out with some hammerfists to land the first finish of the night and the biggest upset of the year according to ESPN Stats & Info .

What's as amazing as the knockout itself is the fact that the 32-year-old Worthy took the fight against his friend Smith on just four days notice and he discussed that with reporters earlier in the week.
"I had to get all my schedule figured out like, who's going to take the kids to day care?"
