Tai Tuivasa has picked up another stunning first-round TKO win.

It took Tuivasa only 49 seconds to finish UFC debutant Harry Hunsucker who took the fight on only four days notice.

The Western-Sydney native nailed a number of hard leg quicks in quick succession before eventually landing a thunderous right hand which dropped Hunsucker to the canvas. Tuivasa followed the shot up with a barrage of punches on the ground before referee Herb Dean was forced to wave off the contest.

Tuivasa credited the three months spent in Dubai training at TK MMA for the near-flawless performance. In the post-fight interview with Paul Felder,  Tuivasa also stated he would be available for another fight should be the UFC be able to find him an opponent in the next couple of weeks.

“I miss my son, but if I have to fight in a few weeks, I need to know in the next few days otherwise I’ll go missing,” Tuivasa said.

“But I’m back now, and anyone in the top 15…really just anyone who wants to bang on, let’s bang on. Anyone to entertain the fans.”

The win was Tuivasa’s 10th first-round KO/TKO win and brings his professional record to 11-3. It’s Tuivasa’s second win in a row after knocking out Stefan Struve at UFC 254 last October.
