Two of LION FIGHT’s brightest stars and dominant world champions have come to terms with the organization on new multi-fight exclusive contracts.
Reigning World Light Heavyweight champion Enrico “The Fog” Carrara and reigning World Super Flyweight champion Amy Pirnie have both signed long-term agreements with LION FIGHT. As part of their new deals, both champions are being scheduled to defend their title within the first half of LION FIGHT’s 2021 schedule which will air on UFC FIGHT PASS®.
“Enrico and Amy are both exciting, dynamic world champions and we are very excited to announce their new contracts with Lion Fight,” said Scott Kent, CEO & President of Lion Fight. “They have both proven themselves worthy of carrying the crown and I believe they are both going to see their fan bases grow in a big way when they step into the Lion Fight ring on UFC FIGHT PASS.”
Carrara made his LION FIGHT at home in Italy where he scorched Alex Bublea en route to a decision win at Lion Fight 55 in Monza. He followed that up with his U.S. debut at Lion Fight 60 in Las Vegas where he notched an impressive unanimous decision victory over Heriberto Tovar. That victory in the title fight eliminator paved the way for Carrara to compete for the World title on his home soil and he executed his advantage to perfection in beating Greece’s Giannis Sofokleus in the main event of Road to Lion Fight Italy last August.
Pirnie made an immediate and sparkling first impression when she claimed the World title in her debut performance. The Glasgow, Scotland, product starched Sandra Godvik in just 47 seconds at Lion Fight 54 in New Mexico, dropping her opponent with a vicious array of kicks, knees and punches to the body. In her first title defense, Pirnie trekked to Sweden where she turned in a workmanlike effort to keep her crown via a unanimous decision over Lomannee W. Santai.
