Antonio Faria retains WLC light welterweight title by TKO against Francisco Vinuelas

WLC: Lethwei Showcase results

World Lethwei Championship (WLC), the world’s largest bareknuckle fighting organisation, hosted WLC: Lethwei Showcase that aired on September 25 live on UFC Fight Pass, Canal Plus and other broadcast partners across 70 countries.


In the main event, light welterweight world Lethwei champion Antonio Faria continued his knockout winning streak by finishing challenger Francisco Vinuelas at the end of round 3 to retain his belt.

Faria had to come from behind after an overhead right hand from Vinuelas caused Faria to faceplant and had to recover from a 10-count in the first round to win the bout. After being saved by the bell in the first round, Faria dominated the second and third round with precise elbows in the clinch, wearing down the challenge. Vineulas failed to answer the bell before the start of round four for Faria to notch up his fourth finish in as many lethwei fights.

In the co-main event, Nico Mendes made quick work of his opponent, Saensuek. Spain’s Mendes had a significant height and reach advantage and used that to dominate the action, and dropped Thailand’s Saensuek with a knee in the clinch. Saensuek failed to get back to his feet during the 10-count, awarding Mendes a first round knockout victory.
