Leonardo Santos picked up right where he left off.

Fighting for the first time since Oct. 8, 2016, the 39-year-old reminded everyone that he is still a contender at 155 pounds with a stunning right hand counter that floored opponent Stevie Ray in the first round of their encounter at UFC Stockholm on Saturday.

Despite having wins over the likes of Kevin Lee, Tony Martin, and Adriano Martins, Santos (17-3-1) has been plagued by inactivity due to opponent withdrawals and his own injury woes. However, he remains unbeaten in the Octagon at 5-0-1 and after his impressive performance against Ray, he called for the UFC to put his name in the top 10 of the rankings.
