Nate Landwehr

The Train


Winning streak snapped at three
June 10, 2023
Landwehr lost to Dan Ige via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 27-30) at UFC 289 on Saturday in Vancouver.
Landwehr got a well-deserved bump up in competition on the heels of three straight victories over L'udovit Klein, David Onama and Austin Lingo. It didn't go well. Nate's trademark toughness and cardio were on display throughout this fight, but there was an overwhelming edge for Ige in terms of hand speed and power. Landwehr was nearly finished on two separate occasions, most notably late in Round 2, but somehow managed to survive and see the final bell. Nate has improved considerably over the course of his 3.5 years with the UFC, but his record with the company is just 4-3, and he has zero history of defeating better opposition. There's a real chance we have already seen the best he has to offer inside the Octagon.

Runs winning streak to three
March 25, 2023
Landwehr defeated Austin Lingo via submission (rear-naked choke) at 4:11 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 43 on Saturday in San Antonio.
It takes a ton to get Landwehr out of there, so it should come as no surprise he was able to rebound following a poor opening frame in which Lingo was the better fighter. Nate's greatest attributes are his toughness and determination. He lacks high-end athleticism, but he certainly has a clue what he is doing inside the Octagon, and his ability to clamp on the rear-naked choke which finished off Lingo showed just that. It was just the second submission win of Nate's pro career, but also his second in his last three fights, all victories. Set to turn 35 years of age this coming June, Landwehr's long-term upside would appear to be limited, but he's a heck of a lot of fun to watch. He'll also take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts here.
Gets new opponent
March 20, 2023
Landwehr will take on Austin Lingo in a featherweight matchup at UFC San Antonio on March 25, Marcel Dorff of reports.
Landwehr was originally scheduled for a date with Alex Caceres, but a late withdrawal from Caceres allowed Lingo -- who recently lost a fight himself -- the opportunity to step in on short notice. Both fighters are riding two-fight winning streaks, and statistically, Landwehr has higher numbers in terms of striking and takedown volume (albeit over a small sample size). As a result, Landwehr enters as roughly a (-300) betting favorite as of the beginning of fight week.
Set to face Caceres
January 12, 2023
Landwehr will take on Alex Caceres in a featherweight matchup at UFC on ESPN 43 on March 25, reports.
Landwehr had an upset win over David Onama via majority decision at UFC on ESPN 41 in August, and he'll attempt to maintain his momentum in March. Caceres has won six of his last seven fights, most recently defeating Julian Erosa via TKO (strikes) at UFC Vegas 66 in December. Caceres has advantages in height and reach.
Wins epic battle in San Diego
August 13, 2022
Landwehr defeated David Onama via majority decision (28-28, 29-27, 29-27) at UFC on ESPN 41 on Saturday in San Diego.
It's only August, but this may very well go down as the fight of the year. It's highly likely Onama is a better overall fighter than Landwehr, but heart and determination, along with an excellent gas tank and ridiculous durability, can make up for some holes in your game. Nate got flattened in the opening minutes of the fight and was on the verge being stopped. He appeared to get his wits about him when he hit the mat, waking him back up. That was Onama's biggest moment of the fight, as Landwehr took over from there. He absolutely poured it on over the course of the final ten minutes. Given how tired Onama was and how much Landwehr was pressing, it's disappointing he didn't get the stoppage, but this epic war was meant to see the final bell. It ended up earning both men $50,000 Fight of the Night bonuses for their efforts. Nate's ceiling is pretty low given the fact he's already 34 years old, but he's a heck of a lot of fun to watch and has won three of four dating back to May 2020, including this one as a +280 underdog.
