DWCS 63 video: Kaynan Kruschewsky puts Dylan Mantello to sleep with rear-naked choke

More than half of Kaynan Kruschewsky’s wins have come by submission, and he added another to his record on the biggest stage of his career thus far.

Kruschewsky (15-1) only needed half a round to get the job done at Dana White’s Contender Series 63 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The Brazilian lightweight gave Dylan Mantello a nap from a rear-naked choke at 2:52 of the first round.

Once Kruschewsky found his way onto Mantello’s back, it was a wrap – literally and figuratively. Kruschewsky latched on to Mantello and sunk in a deep rear naked choke close to the fence. The referee closely monitored the situation, and discovered Mantello went out after shaking his arm for a response.

The win extended Kruschewsky’s current winning streak to six, which includes five stoppage victories. After exiting the cage, he made sure to stop for a selfie with UFC CEO Dana White who appeared very pleased with the performance.
