Lion Fight MMA TicketsFrom its founding in 2010, Lion Fight has borne the mission of bringing muay thai to North American fans and allowing the best muay thai fighters from the continent an opportunity to hone and test their skills. Lion Fight events, frequently held in venues in Las Vegas, Nev., but coming to other North American cities often enough as well, are raucous spectacles where fans can loudly cheer on their favorite fighters. Since muay thai fighting falls under the banner of mixed martial arts, Lion Fight Promotions has also worked with larger and more general MMA promoters like the UFC to set up events and draw attention to talented fighters. Lion Fight events provide excellent opportunities for die-hard MMA fans to be able to watch talented and skilled fighters relatively early on in their professional careers as many of Lion Fight’s brightest stars have signed contracts with the UFC or other larger MMA promotions.
