Relive the most watched 30-second fight in MMA history!
This Friday we’re revisiting one our favorite cards AXS TV Fights has ever broadcast: LFA 46! Headlining the event’s card is a UFC-caliber main event between unbeaten fighters James Nakashima (8-0) and Kyle Stewart (10-0). This was Nakashima’s first title defense and first fight back since he took the title from Derrick Krantz at LFA 23. Nakashima is a former Junior College National Wrestling champ and also wrestled for the University of Nebraska, but at the time he was still looking for his first finish as a pro. Stewart is a U.S. Marine and was an infantry gunner during his deployment in Afghanistan (hence the nickname “Gunz Up”). Gunz Up is also a Contender Series vet and was making his 3rd appearance with LFA. With the title on the line, watch these men deliver a brutal fight.
In the co-main event, 9-time Bellator-vet Alexandre Bezerra (20-5) took on Sam Toomer (11-2, 1 NC). Bezerra is a Black Belt in BJJ and has only been finished once in his career. Toomer is a talented striker and a former RFA Title Challenger, but unfortunately both of his losses have come on AXS TV. Keep your eyes glued to the screen during this grappler vs. striker matchup!
