A super bout between two top ranked Nordic fighters has been booked as Lina Akthar Lansberg (5-1) will take on Maria Hougaard (5-6) at Odense Fight Nights “Last Call” on March 12 in Denmark. The bout will be contested at 145 lbs. “Tough fight… but really awesome” comments to MMAViking.com the Dane about the matchup with the Swede.
Lansberg is the current Superior Challenge champion and on a five fight winning streak. The Malmö Muay Thai & MMA fighter hasn’t lost since her debut against Pannie Kianzad back in 2012. Since that time, the Swedish striker has finished 3 out of 5 bouts, most recently winning a decision over Luckie Pudlova at Battle of Botnia 5 in Umeå this November.
Hougaard will be looking to get back in the winning column. The Fight Gym Odense fighter has lost two straight, but the last one was at the highest level as she made her debut at Invicta, losing by TKO. It has been over a year since this last fight, so look for the pioneer that made her MMA debut in 2009 to return with force.
This is the only professional bout announced for the upcoming card.
