SSF Academy’s Nate “The Train” Landwehr made a big impression in the cage Friday night at “XFC 18: Music City Mayhem” by brutally knocking out Billy Mullins in the second round (and then air machine-gunning his unconscious body). Landwehr told’s Gary Thomas he had fought Mullins’ teammate  in the past and there was some bad blood coming into this fight. “The Train” said he went back to the drawing board and changed his training camp and diet to get ready for Mullins, and he also explained how he set up the knockout. However, it’s not so much what “The Train” says, it’s how he says it — with more passion than a Ric Flair romance novel and more energy than The Flash on caffeine, is proud to present… NATE “THE TRAIN”!

Editor’s Note: Landwehr is a beast and should be called “The Hype Train”, not because he’s all hype, but because he is so hyped! Check out this brutal knockout he laid on Nashville’s Alex Anderson last year.
