Alex Pereira needed just 3:14 to knock out Jamahal Hill and retain his light heavyweight title on Saturday night at UFC 300 in Las Vegas.

Pereira (10-2-0) put together a stunning sequence that began with him getting kicked below the belt and not even flinching. The referee called for a break in the action after the blow, but when he came up to Pereira, Pereira waved him off while never breaking eye contact with Hill (12-2-0).

What followed was a quick left hook from Pereira that sent Hill stumbling to the mat. Pereira then delivered a series of punches to Hill’s face, sealing his third straight UFC victory.

Zhang Weili (25-3-0) also prevailed in a title bout, holding on to her women’s strawweight belt with a win over Yan Xiaonan (18-4-0). Weili came out on top via unanimous decision, taking the cards 49-45, 49-45, 49-45.

In other action, Max Holloway (26-7-0) and Arman Tsarukyan (22-3-0) took their lightweight fights, while Bo Nickal (6-0-0) was victorious in middleweight action.
