Legacy Fighting Alliance makes its first trip to Lake Charles, LA in 2018 for LFA 32. The event takes place at the Golden Nugget Casino on January 26, and will feature two title fights. Anthony Hernandez and Brendan Allen will headline the card and square off for the vacant LFA Middleweight title. And in the co-main event, Alex Nicholson and Ryan Spann looks to see who’s the top 205’er as one will be crowned the light-heavyweight champion.
Anthony Hernandez signed with LFA last month. His first fight will be for the vacant LFA Middleweight title against former Legacy title challenger, Brendan Allen; this will be Allen’s second chance at LFA gold. Hernandez is an undefeated prospect, looking for his sixth win. All 5 of his wins have come via first round stoppage. Allen looks to keep his momentum going. All 8 victories have come via stoppage, and his 2 losses come at the hands of fighters currently in the UFC. With a win over Hernandez, I could see Brendan Allen being the next fighter to get the call up to the UFC.
UFC vet Alex Nicholson looks to become the first LFA light-heavyweight champion when he takes on LFA vet and former title challenger, Ryan Spann. Both fighters are on a 2-fight winning streak, with both of their wins coming by way of stoppage. Don’t expect this fight to go to a decision.
Also on the card, UFC and Strikeforce vet Carlo Prater takes on Eric Scallan, and heavyweight prospect Juan Adams faces Dwight Gipson. Check out the rest of the card below.
