Casey Bohrman has been forced out of her Lion Fight 20 main event clash against Jorina Baars due to injury, Sherdog.com has learned.
As a result, Chantal Ughi will now rematch Baars Friday, Feb. 20 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Conn.
“When Casey Bohrman suffered an injury, multiple muay Thai Champion Chantal Ughi stepped right up to fight Jorina Baars at Lion Fight 20,” said Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent. “Not only does Chantal want the belt, she also wants to avenge a loss against Baars that’s been seven years in the making. Jorina Baars has considered herself the ‘baddest woman in standup’ ever since she beat Cris Cyborg. She can’t wait to get in the ring February 20 to defend her welterweight title: and beat Ughi all over again.”
Lion Fight 20 will air live on AXS TV at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. and will also feature bouts pitting Chris Mauceri against Sittisak; Jason Andrada versus John Nofer; Gaston Bolanos vs. Caleb Archer; Tom Evans vs. Julio Pena; Tim Amorim vs. Bryce Lawrence.
