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.
UPDATED 6-14-13: Holly Holm will face Allanna Jones in her Legacy debut. Jones is coming off a submission lose to Fallon Fox at CFA 11.
UPDATED 5-29-13: Holly Holm signed a multi-fight deal with Legacy and is set to make her debut at Legacy 21.
UPDATED 5-17-13: Matt Riddle has jumped ship to Bellator. Bellator reportedly bought out Riddle’s contract. As of now, there has not been any word on who and if there will be a replacement for Artenas Young.
UPDATED 5-10-13: After recently being cut by the UFC, Texas native Leonard Garcia, has signed a multi-fight deal with Legacy FC. 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.
