Lingo talked about how he feels confident in his future with the promotion. The 27-year-old claims his fan-friendly style of striking will give him an advantage over someone who uses a wrestling-heavy approach to be the potentially better fighter.

“I like to stand and fight. That’s what the fans like to see.”

“I’m trying to get at least three fights a year man. I hate waiting a year to fight, it’s crazy. or six months even, seven months between fights. That sucks, the layoff.”
