It may have only been July 1st, but Legacy Fighting Championship delivered plenty of fireworks!

For the second week in a row, Legacy brought the violence on AXS TV, this time in Bossier City, Louisiana. The vacant featherweight title was on the line in the night’s main event and both Kevin Aguilar and Tony Kelley put it ALL on the line! Both fighters delivered a five round war, that is easily one of the best fights of the year on AXS TV. In the end it was “The Angel of Death” Kevin Aguilar who took the split decision.

Four of the other five fights on the Legacy 57 card ended in the very first round. Derrick Krantz (submission), Charles Byrd (TKO), Joe Valadez (Submission), and Dan Ige (KO) all earned first round victories, adding to Legacy’s impressive finish percentage.

Here are the highlights:

  • Kevin Aguilar def. Tony Kelley via Split Decision (47-48, 49-46, 48-47)
  • Derrick Krantz def. Dave Burrow via Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) 4:22 Round 1
