Lina Lansberg is a Swedish mixed martial artist and professional fighter in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Division. Born on April 20th 1982, she made her MMA debut in December 2011 and has since gone on to win multiple titles. She currently holds an 8-3 record, having won six of her last seven fights.
Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Lina began training in martial arts when she was a child. Growing up she practiced Judo, Jiu Jitsu and other combat sports before specializing in muay thai kickboxing at the age of 19. She trained informally for years before making her amateur debut in 2009 at the age of 27. After winning her first bout via TKO stoppage, Lina went on to notch consecutive victories before turning pro five years later as part of Cage Warriors Fighting Championship (CWFC).
Lina quickly rose through the ranks with two successful title defenses against Rosi Sexton (in June 2014) and Pannie Kianzad (in October 2015). In 2016 she signed with Invicta FC where she fought 1 time but went undefeated during that stint with a unanimous decision victory over German based Lisa Spangler – earning “Fight Of The Night” honors along the way.
In August 2018 Lina signed a deal to compete with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Her first outing came against Cris Cyborg at UFC Fight Night 95 in September 2016 – though it ended after two rounds due to medical stoppage because of cuts sustained by both fighters throughout the fight; nonetheless earning “Fight Of The Night” honors for both participants once again; making it one of their most memorable outings togethers.. Subsequent outings saw Lansberg go 2-1 including pairing up twice against Leslie Smith whom prevailed each time by knockout & technical knockout respectively.. As of today Lansberg is still under contract with UFC , holding an 8-3 overall record .
Outside or fighting defending women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes is one example that motivates Lansberg everyday not only towards success but also providing hope & inspiration within society specifically young girls who aspire themselves doing what they love no matter what obstacles are presented along the journey . Being able to inspire , motivate others & have them achieve greatness within their own lives makes being part fo this game more than just competing inside cage / octagon but everything intertwined into being selfless human being while achieving positive outcomes out side MMA career as well ..
