Building WLC 12
Souris Manfredi comes into WLC 12 having already smashing barriers in the sport. She recorded the first knockout by a woman in the promotion. She’s beat Eh Yanut and Tran Thi Lua in lethwei already to give her a 2-0 record.
On the other side of the ring, Maisha Katz hails from Spain and lives in Thailand. She’s gone 17-3 in combat sports and looks to branch into the more extreme side of lethwei.
So Mi Ong Luktupfah is a superstar in combat sports. He is quick and explosive. He won his first WLC fight by knockout. Luktupfah will look to build off that momentum built in his last fight.
Artur Te comes into WLC 12 as a kickboxing world champion out of Max FC. He looks to get some awesome new experiences joining WLC.
