He got one step closer to signing a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship over the weekend at the UFC Performance Institute Shanghai after stopping John Dave Almanza of the Philippines via knockout in Road To UFC Season 3.

Despite Almanza’s outstanding stand-up routine in the flyweight tournament opening, the referee interrupted the fight to give Angad a first-round TKO because Angad was simply too strong on the ground.
