Paul Felder became the third fighter in UFC history to win via spinning back-fist, flooring Danny Castillo Saturday night at UFC 182.
Just two minutes into the second round, Felder (10-0) caught Castillo flush coming in, dropping him straight to the canvas.
“That is stuff we work on all the time,” he said. “I do a lot of spinning techniques. I have a taekwondo background.
“We like to spin to win.”
Felder and Castillo (17-8) were feeling each other out to start the round before “Last Call” came in with a strike of his own. On the receiving end was Felder with his fist.
“I work with the best guys,” he said. “We go hard every day. I get beat up every day so I can beat up the rest of the lightweight division.”
