Legacy Fighting Championship is back in Houston for Legacy FC 55, which will take place on May 13, 2016, at Arena Theater. The headliner features a heavyweight bout between Houston native and Legacy newcomer, Justin Ledet (6-0) and Syndicate fighter, Brice Ritani-Coe (4-3).
The co-main event features current Legacy flyweight champion, Damacio Page (19-10), in a bantamweight bout against fellow Legacy veteran, Ryan Hollis (11-9). Page was originally scheduled to compete against Matt “Danger” Schnell (9-2) at Legacy 52 in Lake Charles, LA on March 25th, but was forced to withdraw due to injury. Schnell defeated Klayton Mai via first round submission to win Legacy FC’s interim flyweight title and is scheduled for a unification bout against Page later this summer. Hollis will be making his first appearance on the Legacy stage since August 2015 after a unanimous decision loss to Colin Wright.
Making his first return to Legacy since a 2012 loss to Robert Drysdale, Ike Villanueva (11-7), who will face Brandon Farran (12-11) at 185lb. Also featured on the card is Roberto Sanchez (4-0), fighting David Waters (3-0) in his Legacy debut. The televised fights will kick off with Dulani Perry (1-0) versus Manny Lozoya (1-0), followed by Adrian Yanez (4-1) versus Humberto Deleon (6-6) and Jason Langellier (3-0) versus an opponent that is yet to be determined at 155lb.
The undercard includes some big names in the professional Houston MMA community. Ryan Josey makes his professional debut versus CJ Hancock (1-0) at 185 and Mike Trinh takes on D’Neareon Seymore (0-2) at 135. Rounding out the professional fight card are Charles Cheeks (9-4) versus David Armas (7-13) at 145 and Chad Cook (10-10) versus Larry Crowe (9-6) at 185.
