Jorina Baars shocked the world this year with her Muay Thai clinic over MMA champion Cyborg Justino. After some re-negotiations, she is back to defend her Lion Fights title.
Baars (36-0) will take on Philadelphia’s Casey Bohrman February 20th at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, which will air live on AXS TV. The match will serve as the main event.
Baars was supposed to defend her belt this past October, but pulled out last minute due to “ongoing contract negotiations”. Baars hasn’t fought since defeating Justino this past March by unanimous decision to win the first ever Lion Fight welterweight title.
Bohrman (8-5) is coming off a 15 month absence to get back into a trianing camp. Her last fight saw her defeat Sandra Bastian by unanimous decision in September 2013.
The fight will air on AXS TV February 20th.
