Fight Card for Lion Fight 13 officially announced

Lion Fight has officially announced the fight card for Lion Fight 13. Once again the hosting venue will be The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and all of the action will go down on February 7, 2014. The night’s main event will feature Lion Fight women’s featherweight champion Tiffany Van Soest as she looks to defend her for the first time title against Australian Caley Reece.

Muay Thai Authority previously reported that Kevin Ross and Matt Embree will meet in a re-match and that news has now been confirmed. The pair previously fought at Lion Fight 10 with Embree taking home a unanimous decision. Ross who has an exclusive contract with Lion Fight will be looking to end a two fight skid as he tries to avenge his previous loss to Embree.

In another re-match Coke Chunhawat and Rami Ibrahim will meet in what according to Lion Fight is a winner take all fight. This is the second time this happens at Lion Fight, the first time was at Lion Fight 5 when Simon Marcus scored a (T)KO victory over Joe Schilling and took home both fight purses. The first fight ended in a majority decision in favor of Chunhawat and Ibrahim will be looking to even the score.

The remaining pro fights on the card will feature Nick Chasteen vs. Jonathan Del Rosario, Josh Shepard vs. Daniel Kim, and Jason Andrada vs. Andy Singh.

Fight Card:

Tiffany Van Soest vs. Caley Reece
Kevin Ross vs. Matt Embree
Coke Chunhawat vs. Rami Ibrahim
Nick Chasteen vs. Jonathan Del Rosario
Josh Shepard vs. Daniel Kim
Jason Andrada vs. Andy Singh
