Nate Landwehr pulled off a big upset earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 16, 2021) at UFC Vegas 40 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the featherweight prospect stopped Ludovit Klein via third-round submission (anaconda choke).
Both men went toe-to-toe for the majority of this fight. Klein is more of a patient striker who waits for his window of opportunity, but Landwehr dragged him into a dog fight from the opening bell and it didn’t end well for the Slovakian fighter. Landwehr ended up gaining top control along the cage in Round 3 and slapped in a tight anaconda choke on Klein. “The Train” rolled over and was able to apply the squeeze for his first career win by submission.
