Nate Landwehr, who was spotted in action last night at UFC San Antonio, appears to have defeated Kamaru Usman.Since making his UFC debut in 2020, “The Train” has become well-known in the MMA community and is regarded as one of the organisation’s most promising prospects. With a convincing victory over Austin Lingo, Landwehr once again lived up to his reputation.
Although Nate Landwehr quickly adjusted and began to dominate as the round went on, Austin Lingo had some early success in the fight. In the second round, after some back-and-forth, “The Train” was able to damage Austin Lingo and then locked in a rear naked choke to win by submission.
Nate Landwehr impressed a lot of people with his submission victory against Austin Lingo, including former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, in the process of demonstrating that he wasn’t just a hype train.
The Nigerian Nightmare praised Nate Landwehr on Twitter and stated:
I really like this kid, @NateTheTrain, from #UFCSanAntonio.
UFC San Antonio: who won the main event?
The highly anticipated bantamweight matchup between Marlon Vera and Cory Sandhagen served as the main event of the UFC San Antonio show. Sandhagen appeared to be in the lead at the beginning of the battle. Chito was under pressure from “Sandman,” who also had some early success with takedowns.
Marlon Vera didn’t ramp up the tempo in the second round as one may have anticipated. ‘Chito’ didn’t start letting his hands go until the third round of the battle, but he was still unable to establish his control.
Cory Sandhagen surprised the MMA community by only managing to win a split decision after putting up a fairly strong performance. ‘Sandman’ has undoubtedly established himself as one of the championship contenders in the bantamweight class with his victory over Marlon Vera.
In a post-fight octagon interview, Sandhagen discussed his plans for the future and demanded that he first compete for the bantamweight division’s top spot against Merab Dvalishvili. If I requested for a title shot before Merab, I would feel very sleazy, he remarked. Merab is a true animal, and I have a lot of respect for him. I aspire to be at that top position.
