Earns first UFC win in war
FeatherweightUFC
May 16, 2020
Landwehr defeated Darren Elkins via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
It was a nice bounce-back effort for Landwehr on the heels of his first-round knockout loss against Herbert Burns in his UFC debut in January. He got off to a slow start on Saturday before his combinations began to hit home. Elkins was quickly a bloody mess, and his inability to see clearly undoubtedly impacted his performance. Landwehr is plenty tough, but two fights into his UFC career, he has the look of a one-dimensional brawler. That was enough to get past a fading fighter in Elkins, but Landwehr is going to have to add some new wrinkles to his game if he hopes to defeat better competition. As is, he doesn't pay enough attention to defending himself.
Second UFC bout on tap

April 29, 2020
Landwehr is in line to take on Darren Elkins in a featherweight matchup at UFC Jacksonville on May 16, Nolan King of MMAjunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Landwehr's UFC debut in January didn't go as planned, as he was finished in the first round by Herbert Burns after landing only four significant strikes. It won't get any easier his second time around, as he draws a long-time UFC vet who is heralded for his elite toughness. Landwehr is a few years younger, and the two match up within one inch in both height and reach.
Stunned in UFC debut

January 26, 2020
Landwehr lost to Herbert Burns via KO (knee) at 2:43 of Round 1 at UFC Raleigh on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Landwehr held off several early submission attempts from Burns and even landed a hard uppercut of his own, but his lights went out as soon as Burns connected with a heavy knee. Despite entering as a slight betting favorite (-120), Landwehr managed just four significant strikes in the first-round loss. The 31-year-old will be eager to prove this was just a fluke the next time he takes the Octagon.
Will make UFC debut
FeatherweightUFC
October 28, 2019
Landwehr has agreed to fight Herbert Burns in a featherweight matchup on Jan. 25 at UFC Raleigh, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Landwehr will make his UFC debut in January after winning the M-1 Global featherweight championship and defending the title twice. Burns, who is also making his UFC debut after earning a contract at Dana White's Contender Series, carries a record of 9-2 as a professional fighter after competing for One FC and Titan FC. Landwehr is 13-2 as a professional fighter, and carries a seven-fight winning streak that includes four knockouts. The two fighters are even in height, but Burns carries a reach advantage.
