Legacy Fighting Championship put on its first show in Arlington, Tx, and it was a solid event. There were 13 fights with only three going the distance.

The main event had Bubba Bush defend his middleweight title against Rakim Cleveland. Cleveland was put in some bad spots in the first round, but was able to survive and turn it around briefly. In the second round, an inadvertent ball shot was the tide changing moment of the fight. We don’t know what would have happened, but the outcome was Bush winning by rear-naked choke.

The co-main event put Octagon MMA’s Damon Jackson, against Jackson/Winklejohn MMA’s Hunter Tucker. This was a fairly one sided match with Jackson controlling the entire fight on the ground. Tucker was able to fend off the RNC attempt during the first round, but Jackson was able to secure it in the second and remain undefeated. Damon Jackson earned SOTN.

Bellator veteran, Cosmo Alexandre, had an opponent change a few weeks out. Rey Trujillo stepped up for Luis Luna who pulled for personal reasons. Alexandre showed why he’s such a dominate striker. Alexandre dominated the fight with his muay thai, landing vicious knees and elbows in the clinch. He eventually dropped Trujillo with a nasty knee to the body and finished the fight with some solid ground and pound.

Damacio Page and Matt Lozano met at a 130lb catch-weight, and it was a fun scrap, briefly. Page used his explosiveness to dictate the pace of the fight, but Lozano was able to capitalize on Page’s wild striking. After catching a kick and putting Page on his back, Lozano allowed Page to get back to his feet and they may not have been the best decision. Page used some thunderous body shots to slow down Lozano, and eventually landed a straight right that put him down. Page jumped on him and that was it.

In what would earn fight of the night, Eli Tamez and Nelson Salas threw down for three rounds. Tamez pushed forward with an array of strikes, but Salas countered with some hard shots of his own. It was back and forth on the feet with Tamez securing takedowns as well. In the third, Salas attempted to make a comeback, but didn’t have enough in the gas tank to pull off a finish. Tamez would earn the unanimous decision win.

Evan Thompson and Allen Nelson started the show off in what showed little action from both fighters. There were some flashy kicks thrown from Thompson, but nothing really of any significance. Thompson was able to get the win by decision from controlling the pace and cage the entire fight.

The undercard featured seven fights that saw only one decision. Phil Hawes defeated Brian Cheatham via TKO in the 2nd round; James Polodna defeated Nikon Poowichai via decision; Logan Nail defeated Derek Perkins via TKO in the 1st round. Jason Perrotta defeated Bobby Moore via TKO (Officially), but it was the headkick that was the finish (KOTN) at :33 of rd 1; Victor Reyna defeated Lior Shporen via TKO at :23 of rd 1; Melvin Jordan def. Sean Holden via rear-naked choke in rd 1; Steven Peterson defeated Raynaldo Rodriguez via TKO in the 2nd rd.
