It’s been just over a year since we’ve seen Lando Vannata and Yancy Medeiros in the UFC octagon.

On Saturday, Vannata (10-4-2 MMA, 2-4-2 UFC) and Medeiros (15-6 MMA, 6-6 UFC) are set to square off in New Mexico at UFC Rio Rancho on ESPN+, which will be a home fight for Vannata.

During media day on Thursday, Vannata was asked by the MMA media what his thoughts are on his opponent and what he’s expecting from him come Saturday night.


“Yancy, man. You know, he’s a tough gritty vet, (I’m) sure he’s a great guy, he’s a stud, you know he’s been in there with the who’s who as well and he gets down for a throwdown, but he’s been through some worse wars than I have, he’s been finished a hand full of times and and I’ve only been submitted once and I’m looking to take full advantage of that and get a finish here, Saturday,” said Vannata.

Don’t miss this fight on Saturday as these are two lightweights who are coming off of losses in their last fights, desperately need to get back in the win column to secure their future with the promotion.
