A lucky punch at its best! Watch replay at 0:36 mark
A picture paints a thousand words – if anyone asks you what’s a lucky punch, a bout between Ian Lujan and Tyler Denniston will be the best example. It lasts only 44 seconds, so showing this vid saves your time well.
Ian Lujan is a Guam native and a Vegas resident, he trains and fights out of Cobra Kai Jiu Jitsu and started a professional career this year. His pro wins are yet to come, but in his amateur period he became one of the popular fighters on Tuff-N-Uff card. In case you don’t know, Tuff-N-Uff is an MMA promotion company in Nevada with more than twenty years experience. Lujan holds Tuff-N-Uff titles in featherweight and bantamweight. However, he’s famous not only for his title wins but also for his knockout on Tyler Denniston, which became the fastest KO in Tuff-N-Uff history.
Frankly speaking, Denniston helped Ian Lujan to make it fast and easy, holding his chin proudly high. But the punch was great anyway, it got right on the button and dropped Denniston to the mat. Now, this hurts – you train hard and all you manage to do in the cage is tap gloves!
Ian Lijan then vacated both Tuff-N-Uff titles to pursue his dream of fighting professionally. His debut pro bout at World Series was scheduled for January 17 with Sean Cantor as the opponent. The fight was cancelled for some reasons but something prompts that we’ll hear of Ian soon – he’s young and fight-thirsty.
