In addition to Cynthia Calvillo (5-0) meeting Joanne ‘Jo Jo’ Calderwood (11-2) on her countryside’s land, another taste of Northern California has been added to UFC Fight Night 113 in Glasgow, Scotland as Leslie ‘The Peacemaker’ Smith (9-7-1) will face Sweden’s Lina ‘Elbow Princess’ Lansberg (7-2) inside the SSE Hydro on July 16, 2017.
Lansberg, a Muay Thai specialist, entered the UFC in 2016 and, in only two outings, has suffered brutal wars. In Lansberg’s first visit to the Octagon, she was finished midway into the second round by Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino (17-1) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 95. When Lansberg returned to action, she earned the victory via decision; unfortunately, she was forced to endure a bloody battle at UFC Fight Night 107 against Lucie Pudilova (6-2). By pulling ‘The Peacemaker’s card, the European striker should brace for another vicious onslaught.
Smith embodies a bipolar quality that appeals to the MMA community: she advocates the importance of fighters’ rights while, simultaneously, housing a willingness to dismember others while locked inside a steel cage. Brewing a flawless game plan for Lansberg along Stockton’s Skrap Pack, Smith will deliver a high-impact storm, as she did in her win by way of unanimous decision over Irene Aldana (7-4) at UFC on FOX 22, and flood the hopes Landsberg holds of picking up any traction.
Northern California’s finest mixed martial artists continue their expansive reach around the globe, which is nothing new to the area’s fight fans, but everyone else will want to set their dials to FOX Sports 1 on July 16th in order to not miss natives of ‘The Golden State’ hit like a similarly colored brick.
