It was announced yesterday that Anthony Njokuani had been released from the UFC. Today, it was announced that he has verbally committed to a multi-fight deal with Legacy Fighting Championship.
This will be sort of a homecoming for Njokuani. He fought for Lonestar Beatdown back in 2006. Lonestar Beatdown later became Legacy Fighting Championship.
His first fight will be against Thomas Gifford (9-6) on February 13th in Allen, Texas. Thomas is coming off of a KO win over Wade Johnson at Legacy 34 in Tunica, Mississippi.
