Lion Fight 34 results from the Tropicana in Las Vegas, Nevada. Iman Barlow and Regian Eersel both put on fantastic performances to defend their Lion Fight gold.
In the Lion Fight 34 main event, Friday, February 3, 2017, Regian Eersel put in an effortless display against Dewitt Pratt to retain his super-middleweight title. The official end of the fight came at 2:29 of round one, with jumping switch knee followed by a right hand for the TKO. “The Immortal” attempted the jumping switch a few times before finding the mark, eventually landing right on the chin of his Bohemian opponent for an emphatic finish. Eersel’s thai record now moves to 45-4.

The United Kingdom’s Barlow successfully defended her Lion Fight super-bantamweight title against Meryem Uslu, claiming three 50-45 scores for a unanimous decision win. The victory was never in doubt for Barlow – who won the vacant title against Jeri Sitzes at Lion Fight 31 – as she repeatedly body kicked Uslu over the course of five rounds.
The muay thai athlete from Melton never looked in trouble during her Las Vegas title defence and even managed to cut Uslu with a daggering elbow. As “Pretty Killer” continues her unbeaten run, now reaching 7-0 since 2016, questions must be asked over the next potential challenger for the Brit.

Meanwhile, Anthony Njokuani continued his unbeaten run in muay thai, finishing Chris Harrington at the 2:44 mark of round three to advance to 23-0. The 36-year-old has spent the last nine years competing in MMA but has never been able to amass any real momentum during his run in the WEC, UFC and Legacy Fighting Championship.
After two rounds of back and forth action; with Harrington certainly holding his own against “The Assassin,” Njokuani would put his stamp on the third round, dropping Harrington and forcing the referee to stop the fight.
In the opening bout of the evening, Gabriel Mazzetti defeated Nick Chasteen by unanimous decision, but the result wasn’t without controversy. The super-welterweights put on the fight of the night at the Tropicana and it seemed like a coming out party for Pheonix, Arizona’s Chasteen who continually applied pressure to “El Nino.”
But Mazzetti was able to counter-strike well, as Chasteen left his guard open when moving forward. However, “The Golden Boy” showed why he is such a touted name, punishing Mazzetti’s face, cutting the side of his left eye. Alas, it wasn’t enough for Chasteen, even to the disgruntlement of commentator Michael Schiavello, it felt like the wrong outcome to kick off the show.
