PANNIE KIANZAD’S NEXT STEP
The 5-foot-7 Nikolai Koubti disciple will try to rebound from her most recent setback when she toes the line against Lina Lansberg in a UFC on ESPN 34 rematch this Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Kianzad has rattled off four wins across her past five outings. She last competed at UFC Fight Night 192, where she wound up on the wrong side of a unanimous decision against Raquel Pennington on Sept. 18. The well-traveled 30-year-old met Lansberg once previously, losing via third-round technical knockout at a regional event nine-plus years ago.
