UFC’s Pannie Kianzad Shows Off Missing Teeth, Bloody Face After Brutal Victory

UFC bantamweight Pannie Kianzad lost her two front teeth and was left with a busted-up nose after a brutal victory over Lina Lansberg on Saturday in Las Vegas at UCF Apex.

The Iranian had her hand raised after three rounds, defeating Lansberg by decision, but not without leaving a few things in the octagon.

Kianzad — who landed 109/210 total strikes, compared to Lansberg’s 64/113 total strikes — made light of her injuries after the fight, pointing to the gaping hole in her mouth, but had poped her teeth back in by the time she gave her post-fight interview, Mirror reports.

After the fight, Kianzad said: “I have a glimpse of memories from the fight; I feel like the first round I had really god ground, taking her back and I got good ground and pound in.

“In the second round I felt really good then I found myself on the ground. I couldn’t understand … did I get knocked out? It was really fast so I believe she could have won the round but I took it back right after that so I didn’t feel [the knockdown] was super-meaningful. If I was still on the ground and being punched that would be bad.”

“I took the third round back and I felt my hands were sharp,” Kianzad said. “I got a cut on her at the beginning of the fight and then I got cut and everything was bleeding. I felt fast and the stuff I was thinking I could have problems with, I felt strong, That means everything I worked on really worked.”

With her victory, Kianzad improves to 17-6-0 while Lansberg’s record falls to 10-6-0.
