"The Immortal" might just be the happiest fighter on the planet right now. And no, I am not talking about UFC welterweight Matt Brown. This post is about 1-21 welterweight Andy Cona from the United Kingdom, who, after four years and 22 professional fights, finally scored his first victory at Machine MMA 11 in England last weekend.
And what a victory it was.
Cona finished pro MMA debutant Darren Wilkinson via technical knockout in just under 20 seconds.You can watch the video above.
The victory can only be described as a big relief to Cona and the people close to him. Not only did he lose his first 21 fights in a row (only 20 of them are listed on Sherdog), he got stopped in the first round in every one of them - 11 times via (T)KO.
"I will lose a thousand fights and then win one, but I am not quitting," Cona once said in an interview in 2012.
Well, Andy, your big day has finally come.
