Lina Länsberg efter helgens förlust: “Jag kunde inte tro det”

Lina Länsberg åkte på sin andra UFC-förlust då hon blev avslutad av Aspen Ladd i helgens UFC Fight Night 118. Nu delar svenskan med sig av sina tankar kring mötet.

Helgens UFC Fight Night 118 blev inte som Lina Länsberg hade tänkt sig. Efter en bra första rond mot UFC-debutanten Aspen Ladd så blev svenskan nedtagen i andra ronden och sedermera avslutad. Det var dock många som ansåg att domaren valt att stoppa matchen för tidigt och inte minst Länsberg själv var förvånad och besviken över domarens insats.

“Inte alls kul”

På sin Instagram delar Länsberg med sig av sina tankar kring förlusten som nu ger henne ett samlat matchfacit på 1-2 inom UFC. Hon frågar sig bland annat om Ladds skrik kan ha påverkat domarens beslut och säger att “total frustration” beskriver hennes känslor just nu:

What weird experience… I had a great camp, cut weight (which was harder than the fight itself even though this cut felt easy) and was ready for a fight. Our game plan worked perfect from the start as I was light on my feet creating angles to then clinch up where I felt dominant.

Every time we got into striking exchanges I felt even more dominant. In the second round Aspen timed a perfect takedown as I threw an uppercut and she had really good pressure as the world class grappler she is. When she mounted me I worked my escapes as she released pressure for strikes but she countered good. I then chose to roll to my knees to later roll back to my side as the referee stops the fight!

The strikes where far from hard and during this whole scramble I hear the weirdest screams I’ve ever heard thinking “wow that’s annoying” and totally thought the referee stopped/paused the fight to tell her to stop screaming. Is that even allowed!? Did the crazy screaming affect the referee in any way!? Did he maybe think that I was the one screaming!?

These questions actually don’t matter at all, just thoughts that I have. In the next moment I realized that the fight was over due to TKO. I just couldn’t believe it. In my mind we weren’t even halfway to a TKO and I was still moving and no real damage was done. I’ve watched so many fights where the canvas turns red from blood and the fight continues but this was ridiculous.

I’ve gotten tons of beautiful support and comments about the early stoppage. To train this hard for something like this is not fun at all. I truly feel like I had a light sparring session last night, total frustration is a good word to describe how I feel. I’d like to thank everyone who supports me and of course my coaches @akiracorassani, @jockegbgmma, @_trymdahl and all my wonderful teammates @redlinetc . Love you all
