It may have been Max Holloway taking the headlines from UFC 206 in Toronto, but Lando Vannata stole the show with this stunning knockout.
Holloway claimed the interim featherweight title with a flurry of punches, but Vannata ended his fight against John Makdessi with one savage shot.

With three minutes 29 seconds of round one remaining Lando unleashed a fierce spinning wheel kick, and it connected perfectly with Makdessi’s chin.
The noise alone is enough to send a shiver down the spine!
With less than a month until 2017 arrives, Vannata has made himself a frontrunner for knockout of the year.
And that is why it is always worth tuning in to the prelims alongside the main card!
