Anna Elmose (3-0) smashed her way through 2015, with a stoppage in March in Germany and then a home soil, highlight KO in May. “Panda” has shown a unique ability to finish fights and with a perfect record, earns MMAViking.com’s Nordic Female Fighter of the Year.
Following a 19 second TKO in her pro debut in 2014 at Cage Warriors 74, the Rumble Sports fighter first put herself on the map. Next came a stoppage at La Onda – MMA Gladiators, where she wore out and finished with punches a game Aitek Emadi.
However, it was a devastating right hand KO of Mara Rombero Borella at UCL 23 in May that showed the world the power behind the Dane’s punches. “Just a right hand and the Internet exploded” Elmose told MMAViking.com. The video below appeared on every prominent MMA website and forum garnering worldwide attention for the first time.
With the skills shown so far, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Elmose get a call to Invicta or the UFC. But with her ties to Cage Warriors and their pending return in 2016, who knows what stage will be next. “My goal is UFC but I think I need to keep on fighting until they invite me to join the party. I’m thinking CW maybe;)”
The short fight career of Elmose is still being defined. While starting out with an amateur fight in 2014 at a catchweight above 145 lbs., the bantamweight is now targeting a drop to 125 lbs. if the UFC creates a new division.
