VFD Sports is excited to announce the signing of Landon Vannata as the newest member of the VFD Sports roster.

Vannata, 20, was born in New Jersey, grew up in Florida and now resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he trains with VFD Sports’ own Coach Mike Winkeljohn and Greg Jackson at Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA.

Vannata looks to bring his wrestling background and skills to the Octagon to assist in the jumpstart of his career.  The lightweight won his first professional MMA fight this past May by TKO (punches) in the first round.  Video of the entire bout can be seen here.

The 155-pounder expressed his excitement in joining the VFD Sports team via twitter. “Happy to announce i’ve signed my contract with VFD Sports,” Vannata tweeted.  Be sure to follow Vannata on his twitter account: @VannataMMA.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Landon Vannata to the VFD Sports team,” said Elie Deshe, partner at VFD Sports.  “We are confident that Landon has what it takes to go a long way in this sport and achieve his goal of becoming a UFC champion.”
