Lina Lansberg (6-2) did not have a nice UFC welcome last weekend in Brasilia when she fought Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino. The Brazilian KO artist stopped Lansberg in the second round. Lansberg confessed to her Instagram followers that she would love to throw down with “Cyborg” again before her career is over:

“Finally back home and settled with more experience and some perspective on things. @criscyborg is just a phenomenal fighter with insane power in her hands! Not in any of my 85 Thaiboxing fights and 8 MMA fights have I felt those kind of punches. My nose got cracked in three places right after the first couple of punches. First time for everything I guess…
Before I accepted this fight I knew about her weight, skill level and ability to finish opponents within the first round. Thats exactly why I took the fight. To step up to the ultimate challenge, to put myself out there far away from comfort.

I thought I would be able to show more. My camp was not perfect but good, our game plan was great but Cyborg shut me down in every way.

I have got some healing up to do but can’t wait to get back in the gym and get ready for my next fight! I am looking to rack up some wins in 135 and I wish to fight Cyborg again before my career is over.

From the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU ALL for the love and support before and after the fight! Special thanks to my coaches @akiracorassani and @jockegbgmma who were there for me in every single way. Big thanks to my training partners at @redlinetc and @gripencrossfit. My sponsors: @palmerfriskvard, @mmsports, @tattooinkarnation”
