Nate Landwehr found his way to the win column once again at UFC Vegas 40 submitting Ludovit Klein in the third round.

With the loss of Jordan Wright vs. Julian Marquez from the UFC Vegas 40 card, Saturday’s main card was kicked off by a hard-hitting featherweight scrap.

That saw Nate Landwehr looking to bounce back from a February loss against Slovakian Ludovit Klein. “Mr. Highlight” was hoping for a return to the win column as well, after falling to Mike Trizano last time out.

Klein seemed to be in control for the vast majority of round one. Having the battle fought at his pace, he switched in between clinch fighting and keeping Landwehr at bay, and keeping the fight from turning into a furious brawl. Klein did a good job of landing the cleaner shots, that was until the final ten seconds, as Landwehr decided to use his pent up energy and unleash an insane flurry as Klein’s back was to the fence.

Klein opened the second frame with a nice combination punctuated by a head kick that landed clean, forcing Landwehr to clinch. Landwehr recovered well though and unleashed a good combination followed by a good head kick of his own. Landwehr went for a takedown and then a d’arce to no fruition. Klein escaped and landed some good shots of his own but not before being hurt by a right hook by Landwehr, who blitzed for a finish but alas we saw a round three.

Klein did his best to return the fight to its slower pace in round three, but Landwehr made the fight a brawl. Landing two right hands he forced Klein to shoot for a takedown, but Klein left his neck open. Landwehr clamped down on an anaconda choke and soon got the tap! Great performance by Nate Landwehr.

Official Result: Nate Landwehr def. Ludovit Klein by submission (anaconda choke), Round 3, 2:22
