Lion Fight 28: Cedric Manhoef Replaces Kem Sitsongpeenong

Cedric Manhoef will be stepping in to fight for the Lion Fight welterweight title against Jo Nattawut on February 26, 2016 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. 

The reason for Kem Sitsongpeenong being replaced is yet to be released but hopefully he will be ready to fight the winner of this fight later on in the year. Luckily there is still a decent amount of time for Manhoef to prepare as this will be one of his toughest tests to date not to mention Manhoef fought mostly K-1 Rules in 2015 where as this fight will be full Muay Thai. It will be interesting to see how Cedric adapts to the rules and fighting such a crafty Thai in Jo Nattawut.

IKF Reverses Decision in Bolanos vs. Kronphet

In an interesting twist of fate a controversial decision from a recent fight was actually reviewed and reversed. At the most recent Lion Fight Gaston Bolanos and Kronphet battled in a razor-close bout that saw the live judges score the fight for Kronphet, much to the dismay of many fans. All of that has changed now.

The IKF has announced that they reviewed the fight by sending an audio-less version of the bout to twenty one judges around the world only for 19 of those judges to score the fight for Bolanos, one to score it a draw and two scored it for Kronphet. With numbers like that it was easy for them to overturn the decision and score the fight in the favor of Bolanos. [source]

GLORY 28 Lightweight Contender Tournament Names Revealed

One of the more exciting parts of the announcement of the GLORY 28 card was the Lightweight Contender's Tournament. GLORY's Lightweight division is perhaps the most stacked division on their entire roster at the moment, with Robin van Roosmalmen running roughshod over that division. Many have been calling for a rematch between van Roosmalen and Sitthichai after the controversial decision in their last fight, but the announcement of this tournament proved that Sitthichai will have to win another tournament to get there. 

According to a press release from Glory's French partner, Team 21, the GLORY Lightweight tournament will feature Sitthichai, Davit Kiria, Marat Grigorian and Djime Coulibaly. The match ups have yet to be announced and yes, Djime Coulibaly sort of feels like the obligatory French guy in that tournament, especially after losing in the last Lightweight tournament to Josh Jauncey. From what we understand Jauncey could be fighting on this card as well, although that hasn't been announced yet, either. 

Also notably absent is Giorgio Petrosyan, whom is fighting on the Oktagon/Bellator/Venum event in Italy in early April.
