Daniel Frunza knocks out Haris Talundžić in the Main Event of LFA 170

VAIL, Colorado — On the weekend before Halloween, Daniel Frunza did what he said he would do. The Romanian fighter playfully boasted during Fight Week that he is from the country of Count Dracula and will spill his opponent’s blood. He did just that by recording his second straight knockout finish for the promotion. This time it happened against Haris Talundžić with just 1-second left in the fight. In the co-main event, Kyrgyzstani dynamo Myktybek Orolbai scored one of the prettiest uppercut knockouts in recent memory by leveling hometown hero Hayward Charles with the blow early in the second round.
