5) Lando Vannata Could Have A Bright Future At Lightweight
“Groovy” Lando Vannata made his UFC debut on short notice this past summer against surging 155-pound contender Tony Ferguson. To the surprise of many, Vannata gave Ferguson quite the fight and he even nearly finished “El Cucuy” at one point, although he ultimately came up short.
Returning for his second performance in the Octagon last night, Vannata made another statement, sleeping John Makdessi with a brutal spinning kick that landed right on the jaw.
Vannata may indeed have a bright future ahead of him.
