Main Card

Lando Vannata

Lando Vannata is a 28-year-old lightweight fighter and his hometown is at Toms River in New Jersey, USA. Standing at five-foot-nine, he is known as “Groovy” inside the MMA cage and trains at Jackson’s MMA Acoma fight team. Vannata is a multi-dimensional fighter owning an 11-4 record with five submission wins and four knockouts under his name. Starting out slow in his first years in the UFC, he lost thrice, had two draws and one win in six matches. Getting his groove in the organization, he now won two of his last three fights and will look to gain momentum from his last match. In UFC Fight Night 167 back in February 2020, his last match was against Yancy Medeiros and won it through a unanimous decision.

Bobby Green

Bobby Green is known as the “King” inside the MMA cage and he resides at Redlands, California in the USA. He stands at five-foot-ten and this lightweight sharpens his cage skills at the Pinnacle Fighting Systems. Green now owns a 25-10 and balances his wins with 9 submissions, 8 knockouts and 8 decisions. He started fighting in the UFC in February 2013 and won his first four fights. After that, it was a downward spiral for him losing five of his last seven bouts. His last match was just this June 20 in UFC on ESPN 11 where he was put inside the veteran Clay Guida inside the same cage. Green put the match to the limit and eventually earned the approval of all the judges after the final bell.
