Manny Vazquez Defends the Bantamweight Title Friday at Legacy 56



Bantamweight Title on the Line Friday

Someone is going home with the Bantamweight belt! Legacy heads to Dallas, Texas this week for their 56th event.

After his HUGE upset at Legacy 51, Manny Vazquez (9-1) returns to the cage to defend the title, and he’ll do it in hostile territory. The champ, Vazquez, is set to take on 9-time Legacy veteran, Steven “Ocho” Peterson (13-4), in the night’s main event.

The co-main event features a pair of familiar faces as Jason “Wild Thing” Sampson (13-1) takes on Ryan “Riptide” Hollis (11-9) at Bantamweight. The winner of this fight will definitely have their eye on a possible title match with the winner of the main event.

Also on the card: Bilial Williams (6-2) returns for his 3rd Legacy event in a row, JC “Superstar” Cottrell (16-3) is looking to extend his win streak to 6, and 6 fight UFC veteran, Edwin “El Feroz” Figueroa (9-4) , makes his Legacy debut.
