UFC’s Upcoming London Event Takes A Hit, Loses Female Bout

UFC boss Dana White.

UFC Fight Night: London is fast approaching, as UFC officials are scrambling to find a replacement for the “Elbow Princess” by March 18.

UFC newcomers Lina “Elbow Princess” Lansberg and Veronica Macedo were initially scheduled to face each other at March’s UFC Fight Night in London. According to MMA Junkie, Macedo has been pulled from the event.

While the reasoning behind the alleged dropout is still unknown, UFC officials have also not provided a new opponent for Lansberg.

Both fighters are coming off of losses within their UFC debuts. “The Elbow Princess” is coming off of a rough TKO to Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, while Macedo recently suffered a loss to Ashlee Evans-Smith.

UFC Fight Night: London will feature light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa facing off against Corey Anderson in the main event.
