Lion Fight is expected to return with Lion Fight 13 on February 7, 2014 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Yodsanklai Fairtex is expected to headline the event, although his opponent has not been confirmed. Sources close to Lion Fight informed Muay Thai Authority about the upcoming date for Lion Fight 13 and Yodsanklai being involved in the main event, but Lion Fight has not made an official announcement.
The event is expected to be officially announced soon along with the main event. This will be Lion Fight's first show for 2014 and as their last few events Lion Fight 13 is expected to air on AXS TV.
This will mark the third time Yodsanklai fights for Lion Fight, with all of his appearances in America taking place under their promotional banner. A few years ago it seemed Yodsanklai might be coming to the end of his career, but after a 2011 loss to Artur Kyshenko he has won nine straight bouts. His victories during his nine fight win streak include names such as Kem Sitsongpeenong, Gregory Choplin, Yohan Lidon and Chike Lindsay.
