You do realised the video is in slow motion?
Watch it in real time. MM landed the punch with 2:54 left in the round. 2:53 is when Benavidez landed on the ground. Big John was already moving swiftly towards them at 2:54 to confirm the KO. By 2:52, Big John have already touched MM on the back and actually slip and had to pushed onto the cage for balance. Everything ended at 2:51.
The whole KO process ended in 3s full. Big John only used 2s, to FULLY stop the fight, after Benavidez landed on the ground. 1s trying to stop it.
