Most people are already writing her off, but a bet on Lina Lansberg to beat Cris Cyborg this weekend might just be the smartest gamble you can take.
For a time, there were two women fighting in MMA that fans argued over who was more dominant. This was during the era when Ronda Rousey was destroying her competition at 135 pounds, and Cris Cyborg was wrecking shop at 145 pounds in Invicta FC. Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm essentially killed that discussion, and it is now Cyborg that’s unanimously considered the most dangerous woman fighter on earth.
Since 2005, Cris Cyborg has gone undefeated. Of her 16 wins, 14 have come by way of KO. She is, quite simply, the most feared woman in MMA, and is always the betting favorite by online sportsbooks in the US heading into her fights. Cyborg has unrivaled punching power, and has demonstrated an aggressive style that all her opponents have been unable to handle.
If you’re wondering why a bet on Lina Lansberg could possibly be a good idea, take a look at her experience. Lansberg is a former European and World Muay Thai champion, and has fought the best of the best in women’s kickboxing. In terms of strikers, Lina Lansberg is best fighter Cyborg has faced in her career. Cyborg showed in her loss to Jorina Baars that she can be out-struck by a more technical fighter, and that may be exactly what we see on Saturday night.
