Julian Erosa kept the train rolling earlier tonight (Sat., Feb. 20, 2021) at UFC Vegas 19 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as the veteran stopped a very game Nate Landwehr via first-round TKO (flying knee).
It didn’t take long for both featherweights to come out banging. Landwehr actually clipped Erosa during an exchange inside and “Juicy J” briefly fell to one knee. Erosa was able to quickly bounce to his feet, land a punch that backed Landwehr up to the cage, and followed it up with a flying knee that landed flush on Nate’s chin. The referee immediately stepped in and may have stopped the action a punch or two too soon, but Erosa was already in position to do more damage.

This is a massive victory for Erosa who is coming off an upset submission over Sean Woodson back in June. “Juicy J” has had a truly up-and-down MMA career, especially as a member of the UFC roster, but he finally looks to be putting things together at the age of 31.
