LFA 30: See Headliner Curtis Millender’s Crushing Head Kick KO

Curtis Millender continued his march towards the UFC with a big finish Friday at LFA 30.

LFA 30 went down Friday night on AXS TV, live from the OC Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, California. In the main event, Bellator MMA veteran Curtis Millender won his sixth straight bout, and in impressive fashion. He finished off Nick Barnes in the second round with a crushing head kick KO. The finish marked Millender’s third straight win in LFA. It follows up an October head kick finish of Matthew Frincu.

Millender, who has been openly campaigning for a shot in the UFC, should be that much closer to the big show now.

Earlier on the card, lightweight Christian Aguilera also scored a big knockout, flattening Maycon Mendonca in just twenty-seven seconds.
