Coming off a knockout victory over Sarah Moras,
the still undefeated Macy
Chiasson is slowly inching her way to the top of the rankings.
For her next assignment, she gets a striking specialist intent on
settling in to her winning ways.
Lansberg has been alternating wins and losses since she made
her way into the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and a win over
Chiasson could be the spark she needs to ascend in the
As the two bantamweights gear up for UFC Fight Night 160 in
Denmark, learn more about them through the numbers below.
Age and overall experience
At 37 years old, Lansberg is nine years older than Chiasson, who
celebrated her 28th birthday on July 27. The woman known for her
devastating elbows debuted professionally on Dec. 12, 2012, against
current UFC bantamweight Pannie
Kianzad at an event called Trophy MMA 1. Lansberg would fight
five more times in different promotions before getting the call
from the UFC, where she is now a six-fight veteran. Her pro record
Chiasson made her pro debut on Oct. 21, 2017, at an even called
Caged Warrior Championship 16 in her home state of Louisiana. After
that, Invicta FC took her in. Soon after, however, Chiasson joined
The Ultimate Fighter 28. She went on to win TUF 28 and has been
fighting in the UFC ever since. As a professional, she is
undefeated in five fights.
Lansberg got a taste of quality competition in her very first
professional bout. The “Elbow Queen” faced off against
Swedish-Iranian prospect Pannie
Kianzad in a baptism by fire. Back then, Kianzad already had
two fights under her belt, and she stopped Lansberg via TKO in 4:44
of Round 3.
Chiasson crossed paths with Kianzad inside the TUF house, and they
both made it to the finale. On her way to the finals, Kianzad
Lehner and Julija
Stoliarenko while Chiasson took the easier, faster route by
Pacheco and Leah
Letson. Due to these finishes, Chiasson was favored to win the
tournament. Sure enough, she submitted Kianzad at 2:11 of Round 2
to earn the win and the six-figure contract.
Both Lansberg and Chiasson hold a win over Mazany. While the former
needed three full rounds and three judges’ nods to earn the
victory, the latter did not even require two minutes to get her
hand raised following a TKO. After dropping Mazany with clean
punches, Chiasson followed up with a few hammerfists until referee
Chris Tognoni had seen enough.
Chiasson only began her UFC career in November of last year, and
she already has one post-fight bonus to her name. At UFC Fight
Night 151 last May, she rallied late in the first round and
battered Sara Moras at the start of Round 2 to come out with a TKO
victory and a Performance of the Night bonus. On the other hand,
Lansberg has yet to come up with an Octagon performance worthy of a
