Some powerful punching and skilled grappling gets the job done for Impa Kasanganay.
In his first fight since being the victim of the 2020 Knockout of the Year from Joaquin Buckley, Kasanganay managed to overwhelm and submit Sasha Palatnikov.
Impa Kasanganay chokes out Sasha Palatnikov without needing hooks
Kasanganay came out right away on the offensive, shaking up Palatnikov early and scoring a takedown, staying in top position for the first half of the opening five minutes and looking for an arm-triangle.
Palatnikov did get back to his feet and got Kasanganay against the cage, but Kasanganay still landed the more effective shots.
Kasanganay rocked Palatnikov almost immediately at the start of the second round and went into scramble mode, where he was able to lock in a choke without hooks and score a submission seconds into the second.
