At UFC on ESPN 40, Cory McKenna was stopped with a Von Flue choke.
On Saturday night at UFC Apex in Vegas, McKenna (seven wins and two losses in mixed martial arts), finished Granger (three wins and three losses in mixed martial arts).
The boxer from Wales defeats the opponent in the first and second rounds despite having a 10-inch reach advantage. McKenna’s Von Flue choke victory was made possible by Granger’s defensive lapse.
Making history was a thrill for McKenna, who had the help of Team Alpha Male member Darren Elkins in deciding how to wrap off Von Flue’s training session.
After the battle, McKenna said, “I’ve never finished a Von Flue before in my life,“
Suddenly, I found myself holding onto her arm. We couldn’t move. Are you sure I’m finished?
Alonzo Menifield, Jordan Rinaldi and Ovince Saint Preux are the only other Von Flue choke winners that McKenna has joined.
