UFC's International Fight Week is set for the first week in July, culminating with two, back-to-back events on the weekend. The whole week promises to be full of UFC-related events, but what is interesting is that today Lion Fight announced that Lion Fight 16 would take place on July 4th in Las Vegas as an official part of UFC's International Fight Week. The event will happen at the Pearl at the Palms and have the UFC's official endorsement, meaning that it will be a part of UFC's International Fight Week in a big way.
The event is set to be headlined by Kevin Ross vs. Michael Thompson for Lion Fight's Super Lightweight Championship. Tiffany Van Soest will be the co-main event of the evening with her opponent to be announced in the near future, it will also see Rungravee Sasiprasa make his debut. The event will be broadcast on AXS TV, per usual.
