Legacy Fighting Alliance Crowns an Interim Champion | May 4th on AXS TV

Heinisch & Checco Battle for the Interim Middleweight Belt at LFA 39!

Headlining the LFA 39 card is a battle for the Interim Middleweight title as Ian Heinisch (9-1) takes on Gabriel Checco (10-2). The current champion, Anthony Hernandez, has been taking time off to heal up, and now has plans to fight in The Contender Series this summer. We've seen a lot of Heinisch on AXS TV, he is a former Colorado State Wrestling Champ and trains out of Factory X. Checco is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and has finished every one of his opponents, but he hasn't fought since 2016. If Heinisch can keep the fight standing he could dominate, but as soon as it goes to the ground, Checco will have the advantage. In the co-main event of the evening, Hayward Charles (15-10) faces Brazilian Christiano Frohlich (9-3). Charles has a gym in Avon, CO, just a couple exits down the highway from Vail, and is a Black Belt in BJJ with 14 submission wins. Frohlich is riding a 5-fight win streak and recently started training with BJJ ace and AXS TV Alum Raphael Lovato Jr. in Oklahoma. Watch for these fighters to make things technical on the ground.
