Sofia Begherdai Gains Solid Win at Championship Kickboxing in Las Vegas
Las Vegas saw the return of pro kickboxing after a four years absence, with Las Vegas fighter Sophie Bagherdai (6-1 MMA)gaining a win over Washington State’s Jessica Bartness (5-3 MMA) by unanimous decision in a women’s lightweight bout at the Kickboxing Empire event at the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas this past weekend.
Bagherdai dominated the five round bout. Kim Couture helped arrange the bout after she had to bow out due to a medical suspension. The hope is that pro kickboxing will return on a regular basis in Vegas, and that female kickboxing will also be featured.
