Brazilian lightweight Luigi Vendramini hasn’t fought in almost two years.

Luigi Vendramini had a great start in his UFC debut, giving Elizeu Zaleski some trouble before losing by knockout in Sao Paulo. That happened in Sept. 2018, though, and “The Italian Stallion” hasn’t entered the octagon since.

Bill McKelvey, from West Liberty, shops at Mendelsons Outlet Store downtown on First St. Monday August 31, 2020. Mendelsons originally was supposed to shut down and vacate by September.

Open since 1960, Mendelsons originally was supposed to shut down and vacate its massive outlet building at 340 E. First St. Tuesday (Sept. 1) as new ownership prepares to redevelop the property into a mix of apartments, retail and restaurants.
