Ian Heinisch def. Gabriel Checco at LFA 39: Best photos

Before Ian Heinisch had his shot at the UFC, he made a major impact when he won LFA’s middleweight title.

A little more than a year ago, Heinisch won the vacant 185-pound strap at LFA 39 with a highlight-reel one-punch knockout of Gabriel Checco. Soon after that, he got an invite to Dana White’s Contenders Series, where he picked up a TKO win over Justin Sumter and got a UFC deal.

Heinisch continued to impress in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 140 this past November when he upset Cezar Ferreira.
