Lando Vannata put the MMA world on notice when he fought Tony Ferguson back in July, and had an incredible first round against the potential title contender. Although he came up short, losing by submission in the second round, Vannata’s stock rose as he was relatively unknown prior to the fight.
Vannata took on John Makdessi in his second UFC outing, and he put on a performance that will be talked about for years to come. After feinting an inside leg kick, Vannata threw a wheel kick that landed right on Makdessi’s jaw; he was out before he hit the ground. Edson Barboza and Uriah Hall are both proud.
WHAT A KICK!
