After making headlines around the world, Jorina Baars is back in action at Lion Fights September 5th in Las Vegas. She will defend her welterweight (147) title against Belgium’s Anke Van Gestel.
Baars (36-0-1 Muay Thai/K-1) turned heads defeating MMA superstar Cyborg Justino at Lion Fights this past March. With 18 years worth of training, Baars was unable to find fights in Muay Thai for three years before the fight with Cyborg. The Dutch fighter dominated the fight and became an overnight sensation.
Van Gestel (30-5-3 Muay Thai/K-1) has notable wins over Ilona Wijmans and Claire Haigh. She recently defeated Lindsay Sheer in May at Enfusion.
The match will air on AXS-TV September 5th.
