Nik Lentz (28-8-2 MMA, 12-5-1 UFC) pick up a stellar second-round Guillotine choke on former American Top Team training partner Will Brooks (18-4 MMA, 1-3 UFC).
Lentz was originally scheduled to face Brooks (18-4 MMA, 1-3 UFC) at UFC 216 on Oct. 7, but pulled out due to “medical issues” before weigh-ins.
Brooks immediately moves forward with two traded kicks early. Lentz trapped inside for a short right uppercut. Shortly after Lentz found his opportunity, he locked up the choke, rolled with it, and forced Brooks to tap into the 2nd round at 2:05.

“I’m a professional, and I hate to say it, but I’d beat my mama up in here if I had to,” Lentz said. “When I left (American Top Team), I’ve gotta admit, I love ATT, but it broke my heart that I had to leave. But they came after me with this fight. So Dan Lambert, I’ve got $50,000 that says there’s no one at ATT who can beat Nik Lentz. Money on the table right now. Who cares (who it is): Line ’em up, from the bottom to the top, like Mortal Kombat.”
