Lina Lansberg vs. Yana Kunitskaya | This Saturday, UFC 229 Early Prelims | 6:15pm ET, LIVE on UFC FIGHT PASS

This Saturday’s UFC 229 early preliminary card will be headlined by an exciting women’s bantamweight matchup between Lina Lansberg and Yana Kunitskaya.

Lansberg looks to build on a unanimous decision win over Gina Mazany.

Lansberg (8-3-0), also known as the ‘Elbow Queen’, returns to competition following a dominant unanimous decision win over Gina Mazany at the UFC Liverpool event this past May. The 36-year-old owns an additional promotional victory over Lucia Pudilova with her two losses coming to Cris Cyborg and Aspen Ladd. Lansberg is currently ranked number-twelve in the UFC rankings and number-ten in the WMMA World Rankings.

Kunitskaya makes her second UFC appearance this Saturday.

Kunitskaya (10-4-0, 1 NC) returns to competition following an unsuccessful promotional debut this past March, losing by way of a first-round TKO to Cris Cyborg in the main event of UFC 222. The ‘Foxy’ one is a former Invicta FC bantamweight champion who won the belt in August 2017 after defeating Raquel Pa’aluhi in the main event of Invicta FC 25. The 28-year-old owns a notable 2010 win over top-five ranked featherweight, Cindy Dandois.
