The Oxfighter


Quick turnaround against Pereira
November 21, 2020
Williams will take on Michel Pereira in a welterweight matchup at a UFC event scheduled for Dec. 19, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
Williams is fresh off a dominant performance, as he defeated Abdul Razak Alhassan via KO (punch) at 0:30 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Nov. 14. He displayed his power as he knocked out his second opponent in as many UFC fights. He'll face Pereira, who defeated Zelim Imadaev via submission (rear-naked choke) in early September. Pereira has an edge in height, but Williams has an advantage in reach.

Destroys Abdul Razak Alhassan
November 14, 2020
Williams defeated Abdul Razak Alhassan via KO (punch) at 0:30 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Khaos, indeed. There isn't a ton to break down here from a technical standpoint. Williams -- who entered as a +185 underdog -- blasted his overweight opponent with massive right hand down the middle and that was all she wrote. Referee Mark Smith was there to step in immediately but it was clear as day the fight was over. The power of Williams is truly terrifying. In his first two UFC bouts, he has knocked out Alhassan and Alex Morono (who won earlier Saturday) in a combined 57 seconds. There needs to be a congressional investigation if Khaos doesn't walk away with a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus after this one.
Opponent misses weight
November 13, 2020
Williams' opponent for Saturday's fight, Abdul Razak Alhassan, missed weight Friday, but the fight will proceed as scheduled, source reports.
Alhassan came in at 172.5 pounds, 1.5 pounds above the welterweight limit. While the fight will go forward nonetheless, Williams will be awarded 20 percent of Alhassan's purse.
Booked for Nov. 14 fight
November 1, 2020
Williams will fight Abdul Razak Alhassan at a UFC event in Las Vegas on Nov. 14, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Williams will be making his return to the cage for the first time since February when he made his UFC debut by defeating Alex Morono via a second-round TKO (punches). Alhassan is coming off a loss via unanimous decision to Mounir Lazzez back in July but should still figure to have the upper hand over a very inexperienced opponent in Williams.
Draws Staropoli in second UFC bout
March 16, 2020
Williams (10-1-0) is scheduled to take on Laureano Staropoli (9-2-0) in a welterweight fight March 28 at UFC on ESPN 8.
"The Oxfighter" will report to Vegas as a late-notice replacement for Phil Rowe, who withdrew from the event, which was initially booked for Columbus. It's the second UFC fight for Williams, who scored a first-round knockout win over Alex Morono in his promotional debut at UFC 247 in Houston back on Feb. 8.
Wins UFC debut in enemy territory
February 8, 2020
Williams defeated Alex Morono via KO (punches) at 0:27 of Round 1 at UFC 247 on Saturday in Houston.
Khaos brought the chaos. Entering as a substantial (+325) underdog and going up against a Houston native in his hometown, Williams came out aggressively and took Morono's best punch before delivering a few of his own. Morono hadn't been knocked out since way back in 2013 and Williams finished him off in just 27 seconds. Khaos entered the UFC with very little hype and it's fair to wonder if this result is a bit of a fluke, but the power of Williams is very clearly legitimate. Don't be surprised if we see Khaos return to the Octagon sooner rather than late. Meanwhile, he'll take home a $50,000 performance bonus for his efforts.
