Lion Fight 13 Results

  • Published in Americas

Lion Fight

Lion Fight 13 went down tonight in Las Vegas in a night of some hard-hitting action that saw some shocking moments unfold through some very close fights. Don't be fooled by the amount of decisions on the card, as each fight had their own appeal and saw lots of action. Kevin Ross found his way to the win column again and while he wanted to avoid any decisions in 2014 he found himself scoring a Split Decision over Matt Embree in an incredible, entertaining and close bout with Matt Embree. Both men should be applauded for their efforts in that fight.

The main event saw Australian Caley Reece take the fight to Lion Fight Women's Featherweight Champion Tiffany Van Soest. Van Soest was the favorite going into the fight but Reece's use of the clinch and sweeps was what was able to separate her from Van Soest in the close fight. The fight was difficult to score, depending on how you saw rounds one and five, but Reece looked strong in round three, Van Soest in round four. It was a great fight from both women and saw a new champion crowned.

Lion Fight also announced that Lion Fight 14 will take place on March 28th from the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, with Cris "Cyborg" Justino vs. Jorina Baars for the Lion Fight Women's Welterweight Championship, Gregory Choplin vs. Marco Pique and Malaipet vs. Shane Oblonsky.

  • Lion Fight Women's Featherweight Championship: Caley Reece (R5 - SD) Tiffany Van Soest (C)
  • Kevin Ross (R5 - SD) Matt Embree
  • Coke Chunhawat (R5 - UD) Rami Ibrahim
  • Jason Andrada (R5 - Dec.) Andy Singh
  • Nick Chasteen (R5 - UD) Jonathan Del Rosario
  • Josh Shepard (R5 - UD) Daniel Kim

Steven Wright: I Know That Cyborg Lost, But Jorina Won!

  • Published in News

Jorina

When I think about my prediction of Jorina (pronounced Yorina as the J's are pronounced like Y's in Holland) over Cyborg, I didn't even have to mull it over long. In truth, I don't even think I picked an upset. Jorina Baars is way better than Chris Cyborg in Muay Thai and kickboxing. Jorina Baars has beaten far better fighters than Cris Cyborg. Jorina throws solid combinations, lands flush low kicks, moves extremely well, has awesome timing on her teeps and step up knees, and most importantly for someone fighting Cyborg, Jorina is big for the weight class. She is 5'11 and has fought over 150 pounds before. So this means that a clinch and pressure game is tough to do on her, even though Jorina isn't particularly strong in the clinch for a tall fighter. The only thing Cyborg had going for her was aggression. Some thought power would be an obstacle, but Jorina has been hit harder by other fighters, including one that used to be a guy. Not to mention, the gauntlet of training in Holland. Cyborg's only chance was to make the fight ugly, throwing Jorina on the ground and landing wild shots. She was only able to do this in spots, and was beaten throughout the five round fight. Yet I couldn't help but be bothered by the fact that on the strength of her name and history in MMA, people thought that she would be able to just show up and dominate in Muay Thai. This is the lost narrative of a fight that people only see value in discussing the loser, not the winner.
