Cris 'Cyborg' Justino vs. Martina Jindrova Added to Lion Fight 11 Card

Lion Fight

Lion Fight 11 on September 20th has already been shaping up to be a pretty incredible card, featuring Kevin Ross vs. Tetsuya Yamato and Nampon vs. Cosmo Alexandre, but now a third big fight has been added by the way of former Strikeforce champion and current Invicta FC champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino (formerly Santos). Cyborg is perhaps best known for her run in Strikeforce which included wins over Marloes Coenen as well as Gina Carano. She is just coming off of a win over Coenen at Invicta FC and it was announced today that she will return to Muay Thai under the Lion Fight banner on September 20th against Martina Jindrova of Holland.

Jindrova fights out of Brutal Gym in Holland with a record of 17-5 and looks forward to making her Lion Fight debut against a star like Cris Cyborg.

“I know Cyborg is a huge MMA star and this is a big challenge for me to fight an opponent like her,” said Jindrova. “She is very strong with hard punches, kicks and knees. But this is not an MMA, this is Muay Thai and she will be fighting me against my rules. I’m very proud to be on this historic Lion Fight 11 card and am ready to make a great knockout win for the fans.”

Lion Fight 11 on September 20th in Las Vegas

Lion fight

After this weekend's Lion Fight 10 event in Las Vegas Lion Fight is not going to make us wait that long for the next big Lion Fight event, as the next one is coming up quite soon, September 20th to be exact. Lion Fight 11 is set to go down on the 20th and will be at the Fremont Experience in Las Vegas, which is a big, open mall that happens to have an area for performances, the Third Street Stage. Tickets to the event will be handled by the neighboring hotel, The D.

As for the fights that are lined up, there isn't much official yet, but what has been announced is pretty exciting. The main event is to feature former Rajadamnern Stadium Welterweight Champion Nampon PK Muay Thai against a yet-to-be-named opponent, but getting Nampon aboard is pretty cool for Lion Fight. The co-main is a pretty big deal as Tetsuya Yamato will once again fight in the United States against American standout Kevin Ross. Ross is coming off of a loss to Matt Embree at Lion Fight 10, which will make the showdown between Yamato and Ross all the more interesting.
