Precision Boxing & Mixed Martial Arts in Poughkeepsie, NY is now home to another professional MMA fighter. Atom weight fighter Lindsey Van Zandt stepped into the cage for her professional MMA debut at King of the Cage “Regulator” show in Philadelphia, PA. King of the Cage has long stood as the proving ground for the UFC. Over 100 fighters have graduated to the UFC octagon after proving themselves in King of the Cage.
In front of Lindsey stood Canadian Katie Saull. Saull was a very dangerous opponent. A former member of the Canadian National Boxing team, Saull was very close to making an Olympic team before making the switch to MMA. Although known for her striking, Saull was also feared on the ground winning numerous grappling titles over the years. Throughout her amateur career Lindsey proved she was ready to take on all comers so this tough task was nothing new, simply another challenge she was ready to embrace.
The coaching staff at Precision put together a great gameplan that focused on wrestling and ground and pound. Lindsey put the plan in action perfectly and scored a TKO victory after landing several devastating elbow strikes. This win makes Lindsey the only female professional MMA fighter in all of Dutchess County.
