Lion Fight 14 Results: Choplin tops Pique, Baars bests Cyborg for Welterweight belt

Lion Fight 14 is in the books and along with some stellar Muay Thai action that was showcased on AXS TV, the event also played host to a fight that is now undoubtedly a candidate for ‘Fight of the Year’.

Lion Fight 14 took place on Friday night at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

Gregory Choplin unanimously topped promotional newcomer Marco Pique in the main event, recording his third straight win in the process. He is now 7-1 in his past eight outings.

All eyes, however, were peeled on the co-main event tussle between Mixed Martial Arts star Cris Cyborg and Holland’s Jorina Baars, which produced some extravagant fireworks.

Although Cyborg triumphed over French Muay Thai champ Jennifer Colomb at Lion Fight 11 late last year, she was unable to overcome the technical superiority of Baars. Cyborg was aggressive but was relatively outmatched by her opponent’s striking prowess.

In the end, Baars scooped the judges’ scorecards 49-45, 48-45 and 49-44.
