With his submission victory over Tommy Hayden at UFC 150, Dennis Bermudez showed why he is one of the most promising young talents in the featherweight division.

Like many of his previous fights, Bermudez was floored early before making a dramatic comeback. Shortly after the opening bell, he took a vicious knee to the leg and collapsed to the ground. Luckily, he was able to fend off the attacking Hayden and got back on his feet. 

Once he was standing, Bermudez landed a devastating blow of his own, planting a front kick into the gut of Hayden. Hayden was clearly hurt, and it wasn't long before Bermudez finished him off with a nasty standing guillotine choke.

With the win, Bermudez improved his record to 9-3 (2-0 in UFC).

It was an inspiring victory, and one that was very similar to some of his recent wins. Although it's not a good habit to get into, Bermudez's history of winning after getting knocked down early has quickly made him a favorite among hardcore UFC fans.

He is a tough-nosed competitor, and he clearly knows how to handle himself after getting rocked. He's also a versatile fighter, displaying a good mix of wrestling prowess and pure striking ability.

Bermudez has the skill set to accomplish some special things in the UFC, and at only 25 years old, he's just now entering his physical prime. He's not a household name just yet, but you can expect some big things from Dennis "The Menace" Bermudez.
