In just a few days, one of the biggest rematches in the history of New York City Muay Thai will go down. Brett “The Threat” Hlavacek, representing Anderson’s Martial Arts, is taking on Elijah “The Mayor” Clarke, of Renzo Gracie Muay Thai, at Lion Fight 40, held this Saturday February 3rd, at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The two are considered among The Big Apple’s most exciting fighters, and they are battling for the inaugural Lion Fight North American Light Heavyweight Title. It’s an exciting prospect for both men, as they had originally fought on New York’s local and well-established Friday Night Fights promotions, and are meeting once again on Lion Fight.

She chose the latter.
