4 - Wins by KO Cris Cyborg.
At 31, Cris Cyborg, is now the most physically imposing fighter in MMA history. Her power is complementary to her exceptional technical moves. 14 wins by knockout in 16 pro fights proves Cyborg efficiency.
Lansberg has a 7 professional MMA fights, however she is a veteran in the Muay Thai world with 80 fights on her record. Still, the Swedish fighter should be no match for Cyborg.
