Four titles on the line at Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 3"

Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 3" will take place August 20th at Buffalo Bill's Star of the Desert Arena in Primm, NV and is already set to feature some of America's best fighters, and some top international talent as well. Muay Thai Authority has confirmed that four WBC Muay Thai titles will be on the line at the event.

Ky Hollenbeck will be defending his interim WBC Muay Thai middleweight world title against U.K. fighter Simon Chu. The fight will be Hollenbeck's first defense since winning the title in May against Gregory Choplin at Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 2".

Joe Schilling and Brandon Banda will lock horns for the vacant WBC Muay Thai national light heavyweight title. Former champion Shawn Yarborough was recently stripped of the title for not defending it in over a year.


Chaz Mulkey and Remy Bonnel fought back in 2010 to a decision that went to Bonnel, and now their re-match will be for the WBC Muay Thai international middleweight title. Bonnel hails from France while Mulkey fights out of Las Vegas.

Jeri Sitzes will defend her women's WBC Muay Thai international title when she takes on Canada's Misty Sutherland. The fight was original scheduled for Lion Fight Promotions "Battle in the Desert 2" but an injury to Sutherland postponed the bout.
