Lion Fight North American Light Heavyweight Title fight between Brett Hlavacek (19-5) & Elijah Clarke (7-1) for the promotions inaugural title.
Brett Hlavacek is the winner by split decision (48-47 H) (49-46 C) (48-47 H) but both fighters showed why they deserved to be competing for the title. The fight was equally contested with each fighter bringing in a high level of skill with two contrasting styles. The knees in the clinch could have been the difference maker in Hlavacek’s victory but you could see in the later rounds you could begin to see Hlavacek fade while Clarke maintained a consistent attack.
