UFC Fight Night: Cyborg vs. Lansberg: What to Expect?

By on

At first glance, the matchup between Justino and Lansberg may look uneven, considering the difference in their fight experience in the UFC. But that may not be the case.

Lansberg can be considere a wild card, especially since most of her important stats are still blank on the UFC FS1 Main Card! Her reach, leg reach, significant strikes, and grappling record are all blank. With a blank slate, Lansberg may be hiding a few aces up her sleeve.

Lina Lansberg

Lansberg has had a long track record under her belt even before she entered the UFC. She has a staggering 85 Muay Thai fights under her. Not to mention, she?s a pretty fierce fighter. She holds a close stance that may be superior to Justino?s older opponents.

She has a solid sharp punch and she can push out a vicious left high kick as well. Since she?s well versed in Muay Thai, she may be able to fend off Justino when the clinches start.

Christiane Justino

Justino the Cyborg on the other hand may be ready to take Lansberg on. ?She?s made some great improvements with her positioning and quick foot work. This is thanks to her recent training session with Jason Parillo.

Cyborg is pretty strong and with enough brute force to overwhelm a majority of fighters in her class. But she?s sharper than that. She doesn?t just rely on brute force.

She?s pretty on point when it comes to her fights. She comes into the ring with a tactical plan and sticks to it.
