Vinicius Oliveira delivered an early front-runner for Knockout of the Year on Saturday afternoon.

With just 19 seconds remaining in his UFC debut, the Brazilian bantamweight chased down Benardo Sopaj and landed a vicious flying knee that shut out the lights.

Oliveira, 28, is now riding a three-fight winning streak. He signed with the UFC after a win on Dana White's Contender Series last year.
