The MMA world and its vast textbook of knowledge can be a baptism in blood for those navigating their ship through rough waters. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a Nebraska reaper mowing through opponents like a scythe cutting through the corn. A professional mixed martial artist since March 2019 and representing Premier Combat Center, Ryan Leninger owns a 4-2 record through six professional bouts thus far comprised of two submissions and two knockouts. Leninger fought for DCS, a regional MMA promotion based in his home state of Nebraska prior to debuting with Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 96 in December 2020. He has finished all four of his victories in his time so far as a pro-MMA fighter with four first-round finishes. Leninger has yet to see the scorecards during his journey in the pro ranks. Leninger has yet to make it past the opening round during his journey as a professional mixed martial artist thus far. All four of his wins during his pro career have come before the close of the opening round in the span of five minutes or less.
In his MMA debut at DCS 51 St Patty Showdown, he faced Sean Frank and went on to defeat him in the first round. Leninger tapped out Kirk Grinlinton in round one at DCS 61 September Fight Fest. Then at DCS 62 Syracuse Slugfest 3, he defeated Ronnie Forney via TKO n the first round.
At DCS 63 Thanksgiving Throwdown night one, Leninger defeated Raymond Gray via TKO in round one. The victory earned Leninger the second knockout win of his professional career. He also picked up his fourth straight round one finish in the process. With a 100 percent finish rate, this red reaper has sent many an opponent to an early grave with a single sweep of his doomsday scythe
