Underdog Delan Monte Scores 92-Second TKO On 2019 Champ Emiliano Sordi
Delan Monte was a 4-to-1 underdog going into his fight against 2019 PFL light heavyweight champion, Emiliano Sordi. However, he definitely did not fight like one once the match began.
After a mistimed takedown attempt by Sordi, Monte seized the opportunity. He noticed his opponent stumble and went in for the attack.
Sordi was only able to defend for so long, and soon his back against the fence. Monte threw an uppercut that dropped Sordi, and Monte followed up with more punches before the fight was waved off by referee Blake Grice.
