Legacy Fighting Championship returns to Houston July 19th at the Arena Theater. In the main event, we will have Angel Huerta and Matt Hobar facing off for the Legacy FC bantamweight title. Hobar earned his spot with a win over Nelson Salas at Legacy 19 in Allen, TX.
A recent addition to the card, we will see recently retired boxing champ Holly Holm (3-0), continue her push as an MMA fighter.
In the other title match on the card, middleweight title contenders Bubba Bush and Larry Crowe will step in the cage to determine who deserves the middleweight strap. Larry is coming off of a devastating tko win at Legacy 18.
On the undercard, Ricky Turcios and Eric Garcia make their professional MMA debuts; Jace Pitre makes his Legacy debut after his return to MMA this past March in Galveston, TX.

He will face Legacy vet, Rey Trujillo, in his first fight for the organization. With Leonard’s DGAS fighting style as well as Rey’s dynamic striking, this fight is sure to be one of the most entertaining.

This video was shot of my boy Angel Huerta. All I can say is Great Video.
Photographer, Johnny Rendon, hired me to shoot a highlight video for “The Chosen One” Angel Huerta, MMA fighter. With this being my first MMA fight to shoot, even attend at that, I didn’t know what to expect. Angel is a humble guy and a valiant fighter nonetheless. STACKWELL and “The Chosen One” haved scheduled a meeting behind closed doors…
Of course Mike “The Truth” Jackson will be in the building blogging. So make sure to stay tuned for that. (more…)
