Iman Barlow successfully defended her Lion Fight championship in dominant fashion against, Meryem Uslu at Lion Fight 34 last week. Prior to flying out to the USA, “Pretty Killer” had guested on the podcast and addressed criticism she had recently received after defending her, 55kg Enfusion world (kickboxing) title against, Ilsury Hendrikse at Enfusion Live 43.
Barlow confirmed that she will rematch Hendrikse on March 4, 2017 at the Assassins Promotions show: ‘A Night of Muay Thai’ in Melton Mowbray, England. However, it was very interesting to hear what Iman had to say about the transition from one rule-set to another; and the impact it has on her decision-making when fighting. As well as the challenges of being adaptable to different rules of combat whilst improving as a fighter and retaining her profile as one of the best female fighters in world kickboxing and Muay Thai.
