We’ve been broadcasting the Legacy Fighting Championship for years on HDNet/AXS TV Fights and Legacy 38 proved to be one of the best fight cards we’ve ever seen!
The main event of Legacy 38 featured UFC vet Anthony Njokauni against Dave Burrow, who took the fight on less than two weeks notice. It was a classic striker vs. submission specialist matchup. For two rounds Njokuani pummeled Burrow with kicks and punches, going into the final round with a huge lead on the scorecards. All it took was one takedown for Burrow, and he delivered one of the most unlikely and best, come-from-behind victories in MMA.
In the co-main event Bellator vet Jason “Wild Thing” Sampson squared off against Joseph Sandoval. Sandoval came into the fight seven pounds above the flyweight mark which added extra motivation to Sampson. “Wild Thing” needed less than two minutes to get his 12th win.
Elsewhere on the fight card, Legacy regular Steven Peterson came out like a madman in his fight with Brazilian standout Caio Machado, dominating his way to a first round submission, and Charles Byrd overcame a big height and reach difference to get a highlight reel stoppage versus Evan Thompson.
Here are the highlights:
