Daniel Pineda Returns At Legacy 37 Against Former Champ

It was announced last month that former 2-division Legacy champ, and UFC vet Daniel Pineda (18-11), would be returning home to Legacy FC. Pineda signed a 4-fight deal with Legacy, and it looks like his first fight back will be against former Legacy featherweight champ Leonard Garcia (18-12), at Legacy 37. The event is set to take place November 14th in Houston, TX.

After being released from the UFC, Leonard Garcia was riding a 3-fight winning streak, which earned him the Legacy featherweight title. At Legacy 33, Garcia would lose his belt to Damon Jackson via 1st round submission.

This is a fight that was that was attempted to get made when both were under the UFC banner, and the organization was coming to Texas; nothing was ever finalized. Both fighters are Texas natives, and it is only right that this fight takes place with the Texas based organization.

Stay tuned for more Legacy 37 news and matchups.
