Check out the official fight poster for “Lion Fight 9” taking place Friday March 13th, 2013 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. This fight is a long time coming. After several failed attempts to make the fight happen in Russia, Lion Fight was able to do it right in the fight capital of Las Vegas, NV. This fight will determine who is the best Muaythai fighter in the world at 175 lbs. Lion Fight Promotions has come along way in a short amount of time. In just two years they have made giant leaps by solidifying their TV deal, moving venues from Buffalo Bills in Primm, NV to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV, and now being able to put together these world class Muay Thai fights.
Artem Levin has been sitting at the top of the light heavyweight division for a while now and Simon Marcus has proven in spades to get the opportunity to dethrone him. This will be the second Lion Fight Broadcast on AXS TV part of their “Friday Night Fights” series. Commentating is being done by the talented Michael Schiavello and former MMA Star Pat Miletich. Expect to see world class Muay Thai action with a great undercard featuring Tiffany Van Soest, Kevin Ross, Joe Schilling, Ognjen Topic, Paowarit Sasiprapa, Jason Andrada, and more.
