Schnell Wins Gold in Another Finish-FIlled Night From Legacy Fighting | Legacy 52 Highlights & Results


What is it about Lake Charles, Louisiana? Legacy Fighting Championship was back in Lake Charles Friday and again the fighters on the card delivered finish after finish!

With champion Damacio Page on the shelf due to injury, Matt Schnell drew short notice opponent Klayton Mai in a battle for the Interim Flyweight Title. Schnell and Mai met before at Legacy 32 with Mai getting the submission victory. Schnell got his revenge Friday with a submission victory of his own, capturing the title via first round armbar. Riding a 7-fight win streak Schnell will again wait for his date with the champion Page.

Schnell’s submission capped off a clean sweep for Legacy as all six fights ended via finish. The co-main event saw Thomas Webb pull off a huge upset against UFC-vet Sean Soriano via third round TKO. Ryan “Superman” Spann was impressive at light heavyweight making quick work of Aaron Davis. Trent Meaux  delivered a beautiful TKO victory with a liver kick that would make Bas Rutten smile. And both Trevin Giles and Irwin Rivera kicked off the night with rear-naked choke victories.
