Some fighters do their best to avoid getting hit in the face, because they don’t like it. Some fighters eat those punches up like Pac-Man gobbling up power pills. I think it’s safe to say that Lando Vannata belongs to the latter group.
At UFC 216 this past weekend, Vannata took on Bobby Green, and the duo fought to a draw. And by “fought”, I mean they just about killed each other, with Green turning Vannata’s grill into hamburger.
They earned some extra cheddar for their efforts in the form of a “Fight of the Night” bonus, so maybe it was worth it.
Anyway, here’s Vannata’s selfie, taking while in the back on an ambulance.
