An exciting women’s bantamweight bout has finally been added to UFC Fight Night Glasgow as Leslie Smith (9-7) faces Lina Lansberg (7-2).
A veteran of the sport, Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith will look to make it two in a row. She was last seen in December of 2016, welcoming Irene Aldana to the UFC and defeating her via unanimous decision. Smith’s performance against Aldana was arguably one of her best to date.
Lina “Elbow Queen” Lansberg will also look to make it two wins in a row. She last faced Lucie Pudilova in March, winning a hard fought decision.
It is impossible to forget that Smith and Lansberg have a common opponent– Cris Cyborg. Despite losing via TKO, both fighters have valiantly volunteered to fight Cyborg in the UFC at a catchweight of 140-pounds.
UFC Fight Night Glasgow will take place on July 16th. Also on the card, budding strawweight contender Cynthia Calvillo will take on Scotland’s own Joanne Calderwood.
