Amanda Lino battles Rizlen Zouak for the vacant EFC bantamweight title.

Zouak (3-0) is a 31-year-old who fights out of  France and currently trains at the MMA factory along with top UFC heavyweight contender, Francis Ngannou. Also known as “The Lioness of the Atlas”, Zouak possesses some powerful striking and has managed to knock out all of her opponents within the first two-rounds. In her latest showing at EFC Worldwide 66, it took just 25 seconds for her to get the knockout against Jaqauline Trosee Feddersen. Despite her strong striking performances, Zouak also specializes in Judo and is the first Moroccan woman in history to have made it to the Olympic games, both in 2012 and 2016.

Lino (3-1) is the reigning EFC flyweight champion and now moves up to bantamweight in a bid to become a two-division champion. She is currently on a two-fight win streak, both against Jaqauline Trosee Feddersen, a first-round knockout and a second-round submission.

  1. She sounds like she has potential. A black belt Olympian judoka that has won all of her fights by TKO’s. Look forward to the details on viewing her upcoming fight.
