Losing streak hits four
BantamweightUFC
February 18, 2023
Lansberg lost to Mayra Bueno Silva via submission (kneebar) at 4:45 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The UFC decided to give Lansberg another shot despite the fact she entered having lost three straight and was without a victory dating back to September 2019. It did not go well. Lina brings little to the table other than her striking, but her movements have slowed considerably as she has gotten older, and she found herself constantly getting off second in the stand-up exchanges between these two. Toss in allowing Silva to land two takedowns, and it comes as no surprise Lansberg was saddled with her fourth loss in a row. It would seem to be a near certainty this will be the end of her time in the company, and if that is indeed the case, Lansberg finishes her UFC run with a 4-7 record in 11 bouts.

One more shot in February
BantamweightUFC
January 26, 2023
Lansberg will take on Mayra Bueno Silva in a bantamweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for February 18.
ANALYSIS
It's essentially the last call for the 40-year-old Lansberg, who has dropped three consecutive fights under the UFC banner. She'll be matching up against a former flyweight in Bueno Silva, though physically, the two match up relatively evenly in terms of height and reach. Lansberg has struggled to defend the takedown during her recent skid, but that's not something she'll have to worry about against Bueno Silva, who has yet to record a takedown in eight UFC appearances. However, Bueno Silva does hold a sizable advantage in striking volume.
Losing streak hits three

Lansberg lost to Karol Rosa via majority decision (27-29, 27-29, 28-28) at UFC 280 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
Lansberg was responsible for the biggest moment of the fight with a knockdown early in Round 1, but the good times ended there. She was completely unable to defend a takedown, getting easily planted on the mat by Rosa. To make matters worse, she showed zero urgency to try to get back to her feet. Set to turn 41 years of age this coming March and currently in the midst of a three-fight losing streak, the odds are against Lansberg receiving another shot with the company.

Lansberg is set to square off against Karol Rosa at UFC 280 on Oct. 22, UFC Europe reports.
ANALYSIS
Lansberg is currently on a two-fight losing streak and most recently lost to Pannie Kianzad back in April. The Swede has a 10-6 professional record and is 13 years older than her competitor so it will be interesting to see if age becomes a factor in their match.
Suffers second straight loss

April 16, 2022
Lansberg lost to Pannie Kianzad via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
As has been the case for most of her UFC run, Lansberg hung around but ultimately didn't do enough to emerge victorious. All things considered, she looked pretty good for a fighter who entered as a +385 underdog. Lansberg was responsible for the biggest moment of the fight -- a knockdown in Round 2 -- but Kianzad turned up the volume in the first and third frames to take the decision. Lansberg has lost back-to-back fights and three of her last five dating back to October 2018, and it remains to be seen if the UFC will extend another opportunity to the 40-year-old Swede.
