Major props are in order for CP reader Lewis Scott for passing along this video of British women’s Muay Thai world champion Iman Barlow’s latest fight, which went down in Melton Mowbray, UK last weekend.
Those of you not familiar with Barlow should know that despite being just 20 years of age, she is a multi-title holder who has compiled over 130 fights since making her professional debut when she was only twelve years old. Riding a three fight, three decision win streak into last Saturday’s match with Maritzarda Hersisia, Barlow came out aggressive and looking for the kill, which she would find a minute into the second round via a beautiful right high kick.
Hersisia crumpled to the mat in classic lawn chair fashion, and Barlow walked off with her latest championship — the 2014 Golden Belt World Title. Check out the vicious KO above, then follow us below for the big highlight from last weekend’s WSOF Canada event.
Did anyone know that World Series of Fighting put on an event last weekend? Or that World Series of Fighting (Canada) was even a thing? Well, they are, and the main event of their most recent card featured Bellator veteran Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford breaking out the Sensei Seagal Signature Front Kick against journeyman Joel Powell. The video may not be the best quality, but the sound it was able to capture from Ford’s kick should more than make up for it. Seriously, it sounded like someone fired a starter pistol into a bag of flour when that thing landed.
The win improved Ford’s record to a solid 22-4 and secured him the promotion’s (Canadian) welterweight crown. Wait, WSOF gives out separate titles for their Canadian champions? I’m sorry I ever doubted you, BG.
