The MMA community reacts to a wild war fought between Nate Landwehr and David Onama in the co-main event of UFC San Diego.
The fight didn’t look like it would last long early on, when Onama dropped Landwehr and went off on a wild flurry on the ground in an attempt to finish. Yet, Landwehr was not only able to survive, but get into top position and land his own fair share of significant strikes.
Onama, tired after failing to get the finish in the first, was the one finding trouble in the second, with Landwehr delivering heavy and ground-and-pound and getting to Onama’s back. Both men swung heavy shots late in the round, brawling to the delight of the crowd.
And then came the third round, with both men firing off heavy shots and forcing their tired bodies through an unbelievable and bloody war.
One judge scored the bout 28-28, but Landwehr got the win with two 29-27 scores.
