A night full of decisions ALWAYS means an EPIC round of fights!

Lion Fight 31 brought all the Muay Thai violence you could possibly need on Friday. Every fighter came out to brawl, and the night ended with the crowning of 4 title champions. In the first title fight of the night, Antoninia Shevchenko dominated Paola Cappucci in a hard fought 5-round battle. Shevchenko is still the reigning champ in the Lightweight division. Iman Barlow was victorious in her American Muay Thai debut over Jeri Sitzes who took the fight on a couple days notice. Sitzes wasn’t going to go down easy and served Barlow with some great blows.

Tum Sityodtong and Gaston Bolanos came prepared for an elbow fight, but there weren’t many thrown. Both men fought hard, but Sityodtong fought harder and took home the Super Lightweight Title. In the main event of the night, Jorina Baars showed Angela Whitley why she is still undefeated by delivering brutal blows in all 5 rounds. Baars went home with the Welterweight belt once again last night.

Here are the highlights:

  • Jorina Baars def. Angela Whitley via Unanimous Decision (50-45, 50-45, 50-45)
  • Tum Sityodtong def. Gaston Bolanos via Unanimous Decision (48-45, 48-45, 49-44)
