19-year-old Sage Northcutt entered the Octagon on Saturday night having a chance to become the youngest winner of a fight in UFC history. And it took less than a minute for Northcutt to achieve that record, blitzing opponent Francisco Trevino in only 57 seconds at UFC 192.

Northcutt was 97 days younger than Vitor Belfort was when Belfort won two fights on the same night in his UFC debut back at UFC 12 in 1997.

Aside from Northcutt and Belfort, no other fighter less than 20 years old has won a UFC fight.

As impressive as Northcutt's victory was, Belfort still has the quickest victory by a teenager inside the Octagon. "The Phenom" beat Scott Ferrozzo at UFC 12 in just 43 seconds.
