Holy Muay Thai!

Lion Fight returned with a vengeance Friday with their first event since February. It was well worth the wait as they delivered FIVE brutal finishes in six main card fights. In the main event super welterweight champ Jo Nattawut (who was originally supposed to defend his title) moved up to middleweight to take on short-notice opponent Regian Eersel. Eersel was the noticeably larger fighter but the fight was pretty close heading into the fifth and final round. In round five Eersel secured the victory with a beautiful head kick knockout.

The co-main event featured the night’s only decision as former Lion Fight lightweight champion Ognjen Topic got the better of former Lumpinee champion Dechsakda Sitsongpeenong by a very close decision. Other brutal finishes at Lion Fight 29 came courtesy of Travis Clay (Head Kick), John Nofer (Liver Kick), Asa Ten Pow (Referee Stoppage), and Diego Llamas (Punch).

Here are the highlights:

  • Regian Eersel def. Jo Nattawut via KO (Head Kick) 2:02 Round 5
  • Ognjen Topic def. Dechsakda Sitsongpeenong via majority decision (49-45, 48-46, 47-47)
  • Travis Clay def. Julio Pena via KO (Head Kick) 2:45 Round 2
  • John Nofer def. Jared Tipton via KO (liver kick) 1:57 Round 4
  • Asa Ten Pow def. Bryce Lawrence via TKO (Referee Stoppage) 1:34 Round 4
  • Diego Llamas def. PJ Sweda via KO (Punch) 2:42 Round 2
