David Onama and Nate Landwehr put on a tremendous show for fight fans in their co-main event bout at UFC San Diego.
The event’s Fight of the Night appeared to be wrapped up after Yazmin Jauregui and Iasmin Lucindo impressed in their strawweight fight, but Onama and Landwehr managed to take things to another level in the following bout.
After a strong first round where he dropped Lanwehr, Onama appeared to fade a bit and opened up chances for “The Train” to get back into the fight. The 28-year-old was close to being finished at several points, but Landwehr provided some respite for Onama with his frequent appeals to the crowd in San Diego.
As tired as he appeared, Onama still had several offensive bursts where he reminded Landwehr not to get too confident. “The Silent Assassin” ended the fight particularly strong in the final moments, but Landwehr ended up walking away with a majority decision win.
