Fight Card for MPL's "Baptism by Fire" event on November 6th

The MuayThai Premier League's (MPL) third event "Baptism by Fire" will be held in Hague, Netherlands on November 6th. The league bouts will once again be the focus of the event which will feature fighters such as Julie Kitchen, Yohan Lidon, Nieky Holzken, Ky Hollenbeck and Nathan Corbett. In addition two super fights will take place featuring two league fighters, Simon Marcus will take on Aussi and Marco Pique will take on Ali Gunyar.
