The kickboxing promotion Lion Fight has announced Cris “Cyborg” will no longer fight Martina Jindrova on September 20th as scheduled, as the latter has been forced to withdraw from the bout due to injury. As a result, “Cyborg” will take on undefeated Muay Thai fighter Jennifer Colomb.

Lion Fight CEO Scott Kent stated in a press release from the promotion:

“Martina Jindrova had to pull out on short notice due to injury, and fortunately we were able to sign Jennifer Colomb and get her to Las Vegas to take on Cyborg. We wish Martina well and hope she recovers quickly. We also thank Team Colomb for working with Lion Fight to give our fans this incredible fight Friday night between two female Muay Thai Champions.”

“I am disappointed that Martina got injured and had to withdraw, but I have trained very hard and am grateful that Jennifer Colomb has stepped up,” said the former Strikeforce champ “Cyborg”. “Nothing changes – I am ready and will bring it to Colomb on Friday night.”

The September 20th card will take place at the Third Street Stage at the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas, and will be broadcast on AXS TV.

The event’s headliner will feature Cosmo Alexandre versus two-time WMC Champion and Rajadamnern Stadium Champion Nampon, and in the co-main event, American Muay Thai star Kevin Ross will battle former WBC Muay Thai Japan Champion Tetsuya Yamat.
