Florida has plenty of up-and-comers coupled with many of MMA’S best-known gyms. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a panther of the sun soaking up the rays as the newest cat of the jungle with the speed of a cheetah and the tenacity of a tiger. A professional mixed martial artist since January 2018 and representing Sanford MMA, Dustin Lampros owns an unbeaten 6-0 professional record comprised of five knockouts and one submission. He has finished all six of his wins over the duration of his tenure as a pro-MMA fighter so far, with five first-round finishes under his belt coupled with a single second-round finish. Lampros appeared on The Ultimate Fighter season 29 as a member of Team Alex in 2021 and has also fought for Shamrock FC. 100 percent of Lampros’s victories during his time in the professional ranks have come within the distance. The bulk of his finishes during his pro career have come inside the opening round. Lampros has yet to reach the scorecards at any point during his journey as a professional mixed martial artist.
In his MMA debut at Shamrock FC 301, he took on Joe Taylor and defeated him via TKO in the first round. Lampros also defeated his next two opponents via TKO in Zachary Harvey at Shamrock FC 305 and Jeremy Rogers at Shamrock FC 314 respectively. Then at Shamrock FC 318, he defeated Konner Shewmaker via TKO in round one. At Shamrock FC 324, he submitted Loyd Thornton in the second round. The victory earned Lampros the first submission win of his professional career.
In 2021, he was selected to be a part of The Ultimate Fighter season 29 cast at bantamweight. Lampros was chosen as the third bantamweight pick of Team Alex in the show’s opening episode. At Shamrock FC 333, he defeated Sergio Robles in round one to secure his fifth knockout win as a professional. With a perfect finishing average and quick to draw first blood, Lampros is one panther whose death grip is known for tearing a foe’s heart right out of their chest!
