Lion Fight 17 will take place on August 1st at the Foxwood Resort Casino and Live on AXS TV. The promotions big announcement is the US debut of Thepnit "Mr Knock" Sitmonchai, hes a very aggressive fighter with the typical Sitmonchai style. He is a south-paw with hard, fast punches and low kicks with an amazing right uppercut. He has a total of 98 knock outs on his record and he fights from 118-124lbs that is absolutely unheard of for a fighter that weight, so expect fireworks.
Malaipet will be re matching Justin Greskiewicz and hope to end his two fight losing streak. Malaipet defeated Greskiewicz at Lion fights 6 (May 2012) but I feel that Justin will be wise to Malaipet's tricks this time and won't be falling for them again. Also the always exciting Rami Ibrahim will be taking on World Welterweight Muay Thai champion Carlos Lopez.
I have included a Mr. Knock highlight video so everyone can realize the power this man has for his weight class, enjoy.
