Gina Mazany looks to pick up professional MMA win number six at UFC Fight Night Liverpool when she takes on Lina Lansberg.
The fighter is fighting for the UFC for the third time and this is the third straight bout she has fought outside of the United States for the promotion, but it doesn’t seem to both Mazany that much.
“I don’t really mind it at all, I’m excited to go to Liverpool. I’m really excited to see the Liverpool fans, I’ve already had them hit me up on Instagram and Twitter. They all seem pretty jazzed about it and that’s a really exciting part of it, I kind of like it because you go away and my phone doesn’t work. I turn of the wi-fi because my phone isn’t working and I kind of like that, it kind of puts me in that fight mode. You know its fight week and you go through the steps of it, it gives me the excuse to explore places and people think I’m cool when I go there,” says Mazany in an exclusive interview with Fightful’s James Lynch.
Mazany’s last two fights in the UFC have come in the countries of Canada and China, as this is going to be her first fight ever in England.
It won’t be all fun and games for Mazany later this month against Lansberg, even Mazany thinks a really bloody fight is on the horizon.
“I kind of have that feeling likes it gonna be a banger, kind of like my last fight. I thought the girl was gonna want to trade with me for awhile, but then she started grinding me against the fence. I have a feeling that will happen again, I have a sense that she will want to clinch with me and try to bully me around. I really don’t see her out grinding me cardio wise or physical wise, I really do think its gonna be grindy. I really do think its going to be bloody to, I feel like its gonna be a bloody fight because she wears damage and I run my head into everything…so I wear damage. For my fight kit, I chose gray or white because its gonna be bloody, lets make this a brand bloody…lets make this a $50,000 bonus fight. I think it would be a bloody, grindy fight. I mean whether it goes one minute or fifteen minutes, but we’ll see. Who knows, maybe she’ll have some tricks up her sleeve she’s waiting to debut since her last fight. I don’t know, I guess we’ll find out,” says Mazany.
UFC Fight Night Liverpool takes place on Sunday, May 27 from the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England with Stephen Thompson and Darren Till headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
