One brutal finish from a fighter who competed at LFA 63 caught the attention of UFC President Dana White.
Former LFA Welterweight Champion Derrick Krantz landed a powerful uppercut to knock out Justin Patterson (11-5) in the main event of LFA 63 live on AXS TV FIGHTS.
White was in attendance and sat down during the broadcast with AXS TV Fights commentators UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich and Ron Kruck. The reason that he was there all came down to him filming an episode of his reality series, Lookin’ for a Fight.
As a result, Krantz got an invitation from White to compete on an upcoming Dana White’s Contender Series event this summer.
In his LFA debut, Gabriel Silva (7-0) knocked out Jake Heffernan (7-1) in the first round. Rising flyweight fighter Hailey Cowan (3-1) sunk a rear naked choke to defeat Sarah Click (2-3) in the second round as well.
White talked about Conor McGregor, Robbie Lawler, Ben Askren, LFA prospects and more during his appearance on the broadcast.
