​Dillian Whyte's one and only MMA fight ended in a brutal knockout and lasted just 12 seconds. 


Before finding his feet in boxing, Whyte dabbled in kick-boxing where he held numerous titles - including the BIKMA British super-heavyweight title and the European K1 belt. 

Not to mention MMA where he had one fight inside the cage. 

Whyte, aged 19 at the time, took up MMA before embarking on his professional boxing career. 

In December 2008, the Brixton-fighter fought Mark Stroud at UCMMA 1: Bad Breed in London. 

Sharing a card which featured former UFC fighters Jimi Manuwa and Tom Watson, Whyte smashed Stroud in the very first round. 

He wasted no time, getting rid of his opponent in just 12 seconds. 

Whyte threw a vicious overhand right that landed flush on Stroud's chin, dropping him to the canvas.

He followed up with another vicious shot as the referee jumped in to halt the contest.

​An incredible introduction into MMA, but his devastating victory over Stroud remains his only fight inside the cage. 

A few years later, Whyte made his professional boxing debut and, I guess, you can say the rest is history. 

He's just days away from competing for the WBC world heavyweight title as he takes on Tyson Fury at Wembley Stadium on Saturday

He's paid his dues having been in a mandatory position for over 1,000 days. 

'The Body Snatcher' boasts a record of 28-2 having beaten the likes of Dereck Chisora, Joseph Parker and Alexander Povektin, who inflicted one of his two defeats of his boxing career.
