Early in the second round, Kim stepped in and landed a flush right elbow, locked on and landed a knee to the head with Daniel unable to make the count.
Caley Reece faced off against Madeleine Vall from Sweden (51 fights European Champion 2011) for the WMC 57kg Women’s World Title, in what was a beautiful display of muaythai technique from both girls.
