Legacy Fighting Alliance Takes us to Atlanta, GA for LFA 71!
Tyler Ray (4-1) has found a fight on the main card! Another Brazilian will make his LFA and U.S. debut as undefeated Pedro Paulino (7-0) steps in on very short notice. This will be Paulino’s first fight since December 2017 making this an interesting matchup for Ray who is on a three-fight win streak. This will be our third fight of the night as well as our third welterweight matchup on the card!
LFA 71 has a new main event matchup after Junior Marques was denied entry into the U.S. This not only changed the main event, but also the co-main event and our second fight of the night. The new card looks like this:
Full Broadcast Card:
Now with only six fights on the card, Jason Jackson (9-3) will face Hemerson Souza (7-4) in the main event. Originally scheduled to fight Demarques Jackson (10-3), Souza brings provides another tough challenge for Jason Jackson and gives Souza the chance to fight for the title in his LFA and U.S. debut! To make sure Demarques still had a fight, Hugh Pulley (7-4) was pulled up from the second fight of the night against Tyler Ray (4-1) and now has co-main event fight!
