eo: Abdul Razak Alhassan demolishes Alessio Di Chirico with brutal head kick in just 17 seconds
Razak Alhassan was actually excited to show off his conditioning in a three-round fight, but instead he added another first round knockout to his resume.
This time Alhassan needed just 17 seconds and the very first strike he threw: A head kick that absolutely blasted Alessio Di Chirico and sent him crashing to the canvas in a heap in the featured prelim at UFC Vegas 35. Alhassan didn’t throw any follow-up punches as Di Chirico was visibly finished, with the referee rushing in to stop the fight.
It was the 11th first-round knockout for Alhassan of his career.
“I cannot wait to tell [my son] daddy won,” Alhassan said while celebrating his victory. “It’s something we’ve been practicing. It was actually supposed to be the left kick. I saw his head go that way and I just threw it.”
Alhassan made a lot of changes to his training camp
Always known for his jaw-dropping finishes, Alhassan made a lot of changes to his training camp in recent months to dispel the notion that he was only capable of putting opponents away in the first round or he’d ultimately come up short.
He still managed to make a huge statement in essentially the first exchange of the fight as Alhassan unleashed the head kick that put Di Chirico away in devastating fashion.
After three losses in a row, Alhassan obviously had something to prove, but he’ll have to wait until a later date to show off his new conditioning program after moving to Colorado in recent months. Instead, he’ll go home with another highlight-reel finish and likely a performance bonus once UFC Vegas 35 is wrapped up for the night.

Alhassan needed a big performance coming into this fight riding a three-fight losing streak. The knockout sensation recently moved up to middleweight to regain some momentum, but came up short against Jacob Malkoun in his return to 185 pounds this past April. Luckily for Alhassan, he was able to take full advantage of his “Prelims” headliner.
Moments into the fight Alhassan had Di Chirico backed up along the cage and launched a massive head kick that struck the Italian fighter right on the head. Di Chirico instantly tumbled to the canvas as Alhassan admired his work. It was an incredible knockout that now leaves Alhassan breathing new life in the UFC’s middleweight division.

‘If UFC really want more good fighters, keep your eyes on Africa’
Ghana’s Abdul Razak Alhassan made light work of Niko Price at UFC 228 in Texas this weekend, winning his welterweight bout inside 45 seconds.
“Judo Thunder” talks to KweséESPN about his knockout victory over the American, walking out to ‘The circle of life,’ and fighting in the Welterweight division.
KweséESPN: Thoughts after the fight and the quick victory?
Abdul Razak: I feel amazing, I didn’t expect to finish him that quick, I was ready for three rounds because I knew he is a tough fighter, so I’m pretty happy. I want to get back as soon as possible as I’ve been out for a while, since my fight in January. I heard there is a card in Milwaukee, I would like to be on that one. Whoever the bosses and my managers want me to fight, I’m ready to go for it.
KweséESPN: What was the game plan for this fight?
Abdul Razak: The game plan was to walk him down slowly not to rush him and try to finish him. The plan was to pick him apart bit by bit until he doesn’t feel comfortable or want to be there anymore and then just finish him. Then he started to trade [punches] so I was like, ‘okay let’s trade’ and then I just went for it. He’s a tough guy and we’ve seen him come back and finish people so I was really ready for three rounds.
KweséESPN: What did you do in training that prepared you for this fight?
Abdul Razak: Training was amazing. I actually took this fight on short notice. I wasn’t really in a good shape to be fighting but when my coaches heard about the fight we were like let’s get on it right away. So actually I feel like this camp, even though it was short, it was the most gruesome training I’ve had. Within three weeks of training I felt ready. My coaches (Fortis MMA and Metroflex gym) pushed me. My strength and conditioning coach, my striking coach, my jiu jitsu coach, everybody, they all pushed me so hard.
KweséESPN: You’ve mentioned previously how sometimes you wait till you get hit before you really get going. Is that similar to a light switch turning on for you after the fight begins?
Abdul Razak: That’s when it turns on because usually when I’m still in there I’m in there but I still feel calm in a way until I get hit with something. When I get hit with something I feel like it wakes me up more and that now I have to defend myself. Then I just go.
KweséESPN: Fighting on a main card in your adopted hometown of Dallas Fort Worth, did that put any pressure on you and did you have family in attendance to watch the fight?
Abdul Razak: My wife doesn’t like watching this kind of stuff. Usually she tells me right after the fight she should be the first person I call. She doesn’t watch [live] on TV, instead she always watches it after the fight. I’m actually glad it’s like that because I feel when you have family there watching you it puts a little pressure on you.
KweséESPN: You chose “The Circle of Life” from The Lion King soundtrack to walk out to the octagon. Was that your song choice and how did that come about?
Abdul Razak: I have two kids, a son and a daughter. My boy Razak is going to be four years old in October. My son is the kind of person that if he sees one cartoon he likes then he wants to watch it all the time. So my wife would tell me to come watch with them. I chose the Lion King movie and then he sat down and watched it with us and liked it. I thought since my son likes it then I’m going to choose the song. I’m going to keep it for the next fight too.
