Watch: Skelly Pulls Off Record-Setting Submission Win At UFN 94 (2016)

On this day six years ago, we ran a story of Chas Skelly setting a UFC record at UFC Fight Night 94 when submitting Maximo Blanco.

Skelly’s record of the fastest submission in UFC featherweight history stands to this day. Another record once held by Skelly is that of the fastest consecutive wins (13 days) in the modern history of the promotion. That record would then be broken in 2020 by none other than Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev, who defeated John Phillips and Rhys McKee within 10 days.

Skelly is an eight-year veteran of the UFC and currently holds a quietly impressive promotional record of 8-3-1. Most recently, Skelly defeated Mark Striegl at UFC Fight Night: Walker vs. Hill in February. As for Blanco, this loss to Skelly would be his final fight in the UFC.
