Amy Pirnie (23-3-1) puts her title on the line in her own home town.

Jake Peacock (5-0) has been a crowd-pleasing wrecking ball since entering the Lion Fight realm. The Calgary, Alberta, Canada, product earned his fifth straight victory via knockout with a fifth-round stoppage of Kaleb Hunter to claim the Lion Fight North American Super Welterweight belt. Peacock was born in England making his eligible for the European title where he will face the veteran Federico Alfaro (17-8-5), who is two-time national champion.

It’s the long-awaited return of the longest reigning female champion in Lion Fight history as Jorina Baars (46-1-3) is back in action.

Standing across from her will by Claire Clements (15-7), who hails from Newcastle, England, and is coming off a third-round TKO win in Thailand.

Another inaugural European championship belt is on the line with Irish fan favorite Craig Coakley (21-4) coming in with wins in three of his last five bouts and a history of action-packed fights. He was originally set to face Thai Pok Biil, but will now stand opposite England’s Mo Abdurahman (45-12). The 25-year-old from Southampton is a two-time British champion and has won four of his last five – two of those wins coming via knockout.

Getting a major opportunity near his home town, Alex MacGregor (34-9-2), a 26-year-old from Edinburgh, Scotland, bring his top UK ranking into battle following a key fourth-round knockout win over veteran Jack Cooper. MacGregor, who is eyeing a shot at a Lion Fight European title, faces late replacement Jesus Ariza (20-10), a fill-in for injured Victor Chagas.
