Evangelista Santos Makes a Successful Comeback to MMA at Legacy 50
An event almost a decade in the making, went like many recent Legacy Fighting Championship events…
On a night that Legacy celebrated their 50th event, the finishes came fast and furious like they seem to do for the promotion. Legacy kicked off a new year of fights with five finishes in seven fights.
In the night’s main event Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos returned to the cage for the first time in almost 2 years against Legacy mainstay Artenas Young. Cyborg came with his usual aggressive strategy and cruised to a decision victory. Of the remaining 6 fights on the Legacy 50 card, 5 ended via finish. Ray Blodget broke the jaw of Jared Chaffee before his eventual submission victory, Justin Reiswerg wasted no time in submitting fellow Legacy-regular Jonathan Harris, Alex Black added another submission to his record, Roberto Sanchez came out on top in a battle of unbeatens, and heavyweight Jeremy Hardy kicked off the night with a TKO win over Dale Mitchell.
Here are the highlights:
- Evangelista Santos (19-16) def. Artenas Young (10-10) via Unanimous Decision (29-28 30-27 29-28)
