The Ultimate Fighting Championship's return to Scotland has got another fight added to the bill.
UFC Fight Night 113 will feature a women's bantamweight bout between gritty American Leslie Smith and like-minded Swede Lina Lansberg. The event, headlined by a welterweight clash between Gunnar Nelson and Santiago Ponzinibbio, takes place July 16 at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow. The main card airs live on Fox Sports 1, with the preliminary undercard on UFC Fight Pass.
After falling to “Cyborg” Cristiane Justino in her UFC debut at 140 pounds last September, the 35-year-old Lansberg returned this past March at UFC Fight Night 107 in London, England to earn a second career win over the Czech Republic's Lucie Pudilova in a bloody, entertaining decision.
Smith, 34, shares something in common with Lansberg, having also fallen via knockout to “Cyborg,” going down to the Brazilian at UFC 198 in May of last year, before returning to action in December and winning an underdog decision over Mexico's Irene Aldana. The victory brought “The Peacemaker's” UFC mark to 3-4, having alternated losses and wins since her Octagon debut in a decision loss to Sarah Kaufman in April 2014.
