This Saturday, July 24th, Lisa Lynn Edinger makes her eagerly anticipated return to the ring as the female Nak Muay, under the tutelage of Kru Eric Karner, ventures to Burbank, California for WCK: World Championship Muay Thai’s 30th-anniversary show in hopes to capture the coveted WBC Muay Thai championship as she faces the always tough, Gerrica Trias in the co-main event of the evening.
Edinger, who boasts a professional record of 5-1, hasn’t been in action since April of 2019. Nevertheless, the striking sensation has been plenty busy, investing in herself and the growth of other aspiring Muay Thai practitioners in the Philadelphia area, as she opened Burning Spirits, her Muay Thai academy in November of 2020.
Her opponent, Gerrica Trias has been active, but on the MMA scene, with 2 fights in 2021 under the LFA banner. With Trias 1-1 in her past bouts MMA bouts, it could be a terrible mistake for Trias to test the waters in an entirely different combat sport in this WBC title bout. A decision, Edinger is confident she’ll take advantage of.
“I’d like to say the third round by elbows but definitely the win on my part,” Edinger predicts. “She’s not going to be able to come in as much,” she insists. “She’s going to realize that, definitely the tradition and the game that I play is so much different than what she’s used to,” Edinger explains. “I just think she’s not going to be able to get down anything she wants.”
Edinger returns to the ring this weekend, July 24th to take on Gerrica Trias in the co-main event of WCK’s 30th-anniversary show. Edinger plans to bring the coveted green and gold strap back to Philadelphia’s Burning Spirits via 3rd round stoppage referencing an old but reliable tool in her arsenal, stating, “I like to go for elbows!”
