CHRIS DAUKAUS celebrated his short-notice UFC debut with a highlight-reel knockout to down Parker Porter.
The Philadelphia police officer was drafted in as a late replacement for the UFC 252 event in Las Vegas.
And he laid down the law with a staggering combo of punches to leave Porter wobbly legged before a devastating knee strike ended the fight at $L28 in the first round.
Daukaus said: “It feels great to get something I’ve been working for close to ten years now, so I couldn’t be happier with the results.
“That’s just things we worked on, you obviously game plan for every opponent, so we seen that he was going to throw a little bit wild punches, big overhand followed by a big left, so we stayed tight, everything down the middle.
“I knew he was going to be fast, so I dropped a lot of weight for this fight.
“Just changing the diet, changing everything, so I knew that I was faster than him and I knew I could definitely land with a simple one-two down the middle.
“I’ll get back in as soon as I can, get cleared with medicals, get cleared with work, get cleared with the UFC and whoever wants to throw down in the cage, I’m down.”

Both men came out throwing bombs but it was Daukaus who was beating Porter to the punch several times due to his longer reach.
He gained a knockdown and clipped Porter with a right but was unable to put him away.
However, just moments later, Daukaus unleashed several power shots in a row that rattled his rival and edged him back towards the cage.
And just as he turned away for a split-second, Daukaus struck to unleash his lethal knee to mark an impressive UFC heavyweight debut.
