UFC 283 video: Gabriel Bonfim joins brother in win column with 49-second submission

RIO DE JANEIRO – Gabriel Bonfim made it an epic night for his family when he joined his brother Ismael Bonfim in the UFC 283 winner’s circle courtesy of a quick submission win.

After his older brother delivered a Knockout of the Year contender earlier in the night at Jeunesse Arena, Bonfim (14-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) put on a performance of his own against Mounir Lazzez (11-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC) in their welterweight bout.

Bonfim jumped on a guillotine choke against his oncoming opponent and forced Lazzez to tap out just 49 seconds after the bout began, keeping his undefeated record intact.

With the win, Bonfim was riding high after making an impression in his debut. He said this is just a sliver of what’s to come from his family name, and predicts he and his brother will both eventually hold UFC gold.

“The Bonfim brothers are here to become champions,” Bonfim said through an interpreter in his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier. “One at lightweight. One at welterweight. We’re here to make history.”
