In professional sports, the world is your oyster. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a Diamondhead of the Savana whose viper-like fierceness has created a cocktail of mutually assured destruction in EFC. A professional mixed martial artist since April 2015 and representing KO Fighting Fitness, Amanda Lino holds a 4-2 record through six professional bouts comprised of three knockouts and one submission. Lino has spent her entire tenure as a pro-MMA fighter with EFC thus far and has gone on to finish 100 percent of her victories during her time in the professional ranks. She has yet to go to the scorecards at any point during her pro career. All four of Lino’s wins during her tenure as a professional mixed martial artist have come within the distance, with one first-round finish under her belt. She is currently 4-2 under the banner of EFC, with four finishes in six appearances with the promotion.
In her professional MMA debut and promotional debut with EFC at EFC 38, she faced Stephanie Quaile and went on to defeat her via TKO in the first round. Lino also defeated Jacqueline Trosee Freddersen via TKO in round one at EFC 47. Then at EFC 60, she defeated Freddersen for the second time via armbar in the second round to earn her first and only submission win as a professional. At EFC 70, Lino defeated France’s Rizlen Zouak via TKO in the third round. The victory earned Lino the third knockout win of her professional career. She also picked up victory number four under the banner of EFC in the process. With a finish rate of 100 percent and dynamite in either fist, Lino is one lioness whose wrathful rage has opponents exercising an abundance of watchful caution when entering the steel cage of battle against this queen of the arid Savana!
