Derrick Krantz made a statement in the main event of LFA 63 on Friday, March 29. Krantz faced off against Justin Patterson at Bell County Expo Center in Belton, Texas and a very special guest was in the crowd.
UFC president Dana White was filming his Looking For A Fight series when Krantz wowed the crowd with a stunning first-round knockout of Patterson.
The knockout was one of the most brutal finishes of the first half of 2019 in mixed martial arts. And it caught the attention of the UFC boss, who invited Krantz to appear on the upcoming season of Dana White’s Contender Series. Krantz will make his debut later this summer.
Here is the video of the stunning finish with play-by-play announcer Ron Kruck and UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich on the call.
Ladies and gentlemen, that is how you get noticed.
