IXFA returns to the Delta Down Casino in Vinton, La, May 18th, for IXFA 9. This will be a pro-am card featuring 10 fights; 6 Pro fights and 4 amateur fights. There will be three titles on the line; the middleweight, welterweight and lightweight titles. Although in Louisiana, being that it’s right near the Texas/Louisiana border, there will be several Texas fighters competing on this card.
Legacy FC is coming back this summer and the card is already starting to bring the heat. Recently signed fighter Jay Hieron, who is a veteran of the UFC, WEC, Strikeforce & Bellator, will be taking on former LFC Welterweight Champion, Mike “The Greek” Bronzoulis.
Also on the card, Steve Garcia of 4oz Fight Club will be making his Flyweight debut against Will Campuzano for the vacant Flyweight title. This card will only get better from here.
UPDATE 7-12-12: Robo has pulled out of the fight with Will Campuzano. Jimmy Flick and Will Campuzano will fight for the title in August on the Dallas Legacy Card
UPDATE 7-5-12: Here’s the most recent card; Mike Bronzoulis is injured and Legacy is looking for a replacement for Jay Hieron. There is also a heavyweight and bantamweight fight added to the card.
