UFC Vegas 53 video: Gabriel Green overcomes Yohan Lainesse’s best shots for comeback TKO finish


Yohan Lainesse hit Gabriel Green with arguably the best shots he has landed in his MMA career. But at UFC Vegas 53, Green wasn’t having it, and that led to his first UFC finish.

Green and Lainesse battled it out in a preliminary bout at Saturday’s UFC Vegas 53 event. Lainesse had already won two rounds, even losing his opponent in the second. But Green kept moving forward and clearly frustrated Lainesse. Lainesse was in serious trouble towards the end of round two when Green started to take a series of shots that left no answers. Referee Herb Dean had to stop the match.

After losing his octagon debut to Daniel Rodriguez in May 2020, Green has bounced back with consecutive victories. Prior to Saturday, “Gifted” earned a unanimous decision win against Phil Rowe at UFC 258 for his first octagon victory.

After earning a contract in Dana White’s Contender Series, Lainesse loses his first pro-career loss.
