Malaipet Sasiprapa vs. Fabio Pinca and Tiffany Van Soest vs. Magali Foroni set for Lion Fight 12

Lion Fight will return to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on November 1st with Lion Fight 12. The night's main event will feature Malaipet Sasiprapa vs. Fabio Pinca for the Lion Fight welterweight title. In the co-main event Tiffany Van Soest will take on Magali Foroni from France.

Malaipet will enter his fight with Pinca on a four fight win streak with his latest victory coming over Caio Uruguai at Lion Fight 11 by first round (T)KO. A few years back Pinca was at the top of the Muay Thai world, but facing some serious competition the last two years has left the French man with mixed results. He is still considered one of the best fighters in his weight class and his losses in that time span have all come to big names such as Giorgio Petrosyan, Kem Sitsonpeenong, Sittichai Sitsongpeenong, and Saiyok Pumpanmuang. He has also recorded wins over the likes of Mosab Amrani, and Saenchai in that time frame.

Van Soest, the current Lion Fight women's featherweight champion will be looking to remain undefeated. Her title will not be on the line against Foroni. In her last outing at Lion Fight 10, Van Soest ran through highly regarded Lucy Payne. With her explosiveness she is a danger to anyone that sets foot in the ring with her. Foroni will look to use her aggressiveness in the ring to derail Van Soest's current rise tot he top. Known for her press forward style it could help her pull off the win or play right into Van Soest's strong counter attacks.

Current Fight Card:
Malaipet Sasiprapa vs. Fabio Pinca
Tiffany Van Soest vs. Magali Foroni
