Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut has been host to lots of MMA and Boxing events over the past few years, but the recent Lion Fight 15 was the first really big Muay Thai event. To say that it went well would be an understatement, I'm pretty sure that no one expected Muay Thai to draw as well as it did or bring as much passion like Lion Fight 15 did. It comes as no shock that Foxwoods looked to deepen the relationship with Lion Fight.
Lion Fight announced today that they have inked a multi-event deal with Foxwoods for 2014 and 2015, with Lion Fight 17 being on August 1st at Foxwoods. This is great news for Lion Fight, who have already made the biggest strides that we've seen from any muay thai organization in American history. Lion Fight 17 will air on AXS TV.
Lion Fight's next event is Lion Fight 16 which takes place on July 4th from Las Vegas, a part of UFC International Fight Week.
