By The Numbers: Terrance McKinney vs. Esteban Ribovics


Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight prospect Terrance McKinney’s first promotional performance was what every debuting fighter yearns for. A fantastic seven-second knockout victory over Matt Frevola signaled that a new contender was planting his flag in the divisional landscape. The subsequent first-round rear-naked choke submission of Fares Ziam consolidated his authority. However, he has since rounded off a 3-3 record while getting finished in each of those three losses. Fortunately for McKinney, he has made up some ground and reversed fortunes, as he carries a two-fight winning streak into his UFC on ESPN 56 showcase opposite Esteban Ribovics this Saturday at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis. Ribovics fell short on his organizational debut in March 2023 but rebounded with a solid victory over Kamuela Kirk in July to move to 12-1 overall.

As McKinney and Ribovics prepare to square off inside the Octagon, a look at some of the statistical intricacies that bind the fighters together:

7: McKinney’s aforementioned seven-second knockout victory over Frevola remains the fastest finish recorded in the history of the UFC’s 155-pound division.

20: McKinney also occupies the ninth spot in the divisional rankings for fastest finishes with his 20-second technical knockout of Brendan Marotte at UFC Fight Night 230.

100: McKinney has never had a fight determined by the judges’ scorecards. As such, he boasts a 100% finish rate in his 15 victories.

47: With seven KO/ TKO triumphs, the 29-year-old McKinney brings a 47% finish rate of such kind to his fights.

53: McKinney has a well-rounded game, justified by the 53% submission rate to which he lays claim with eight submissions.

14: Fourteen of McKinney’s 15 professional wins have been registered in the first round—a staggering figure that punctuates his killer instinct.

50: Ribovics has won six fights via KO/ TKO, which amounts to 50% of his 12 professional wins.

42: Ribovics also boasts a solid submission rate at 42%, with five submission wins to his credit.

6: Ribovics has six first-round victories to his credit, most notably against Thomas Paull in his appearance on Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2022.
