Lion Fight 34 takes place February 3, 2017 at the Tropicana in Las Vegas, Nevada. Two title fights will be on the line for the Super Bowl weekend event.
The night’s main event will feature Regian Eersel vs. Samy Sana (@Sammy_Sana). Eersel will look to make the first title defense of his Lion Fight super middleweight championship. He won the title at Lion Fight 33 with a knockout victory over Jake Purdy. Sana looks to be a stiff test for Eersel, he has nearly double the amount of pro fights and has been in the ring with the likes of Yodsanklai Fairtex (@Yodsanklai1). Sana also holds a knockout victory over Armin Pumpanmuang.
The co-main event will feature Lion Fight women’s super bantamweight champion Iman Barlow (@ImanBarlow) taking on Meryum Uslu. The pair fought back in 2011 with Barlow taking home a decision win. Arguably the best women’s fighter in her division at the moment, Barlow will enter the bout riding a 12 fight win streak.
UFC veteran Anthony Njokuani (@AnthonyNjoku) will be making his Lion Fight debut as he takes on Chris Harrington. Njokunai will look to keep his undefeated record in stand up combat sports. His jump back to Muay Thai comes after having a rough patch in his MMA career which has seen him drop his last five bouts.
One of the highly anticipated fights on the card features CSA Gym’s Gabriel Mazzetti taking on Nick Chasteen (@NickChasteen). The 18 year old Mazzetti made a splash in his Lion Fight debut when he scored a KO victory of Josh Shepard at Lion Fight 32. Chasteen will be looking to snap a two fight losing streak inside the Lion Fight ring.
Lion Fight 34 will air live on AXS TV.
