With two of the bigger fights for GLORY's Last Man Standing tournament already announced it comes as no shock to see the third matchup being Wayne Barrett vs. Bogdan Stoica. Both men have strong ties to their homes with rabid fans and are ready to prove themselves as the best in the world. Stoic is from Romania, best known for his fights in SuperKombat, and Barrett best known in the New York Muay Thai scene, with his win over Joe Schilling last year making headlines.
The fourth matchup is of course Artem Levin vs. Alex Peireira. Artem Levin is, of course, one of the best in the world at this weight class and has been for years. This makes for a big fight for Peireira, but it's hard to count him out, especially after winning the GLORY 14 Middleweight Contender tournament.
Last Man Standing goes down on June 21st in Los Angeles, directly following GLORY 17 on Spike TV.
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.
