Nate Landwehr vs. David Onama round-by-round results
Round 1: 10-9 Onama
A series of strikes coming from various angles from Onama put Landwehr on the canvas twice, and it looked like it might be over. A nice job by Landwehr to escape and reverse a position on the mat, and he actually went on offense on the ground, but the winner was clear. Onama has a clear speed and power advantage in the stand-up.
Round 2: 10-9 Landwehr
An absolutely wild round, and but for a flurry and some escapes from Onama it might have been 10-8. Landwehr appeared to have multiple chokes close to set, but the sweat and the work of Onama kept it from being over.
Onama is in trouble, and he’s going to want to strike from his feet early in the third to have a chance.
Round 3: 10-9 Landwehr
Just an absolutely nuts round. Landwehr let Onama back on his feet three times while inciting the crowd, but Onama still returned fire with plenty of offense of his own. The fight ended as Landwehr got cocky, and almost got knocked out just before the horn.
It was close, but Landwehr just landed more significant strikes and should be the winner. But a candidate for Fight Night bout of the year.
