March 17, 2015
Legacy Makes it’s Debut in Georgia With a Heavyweight Title Fight!
Atlanta is home to Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, the Braves, and for this Friday, the Legacy Fighting Championship!
Legacy makes its debut in the “Peach State” Friday with a card that features a heavyweight title fight in the main event! Almost no other three words are as exciting as “heavyweight title fight.” Cody “Freight Train” East returns Friday to defend his belt against hard hitting New Zealand-born Brice Ritani-Coe in the main event of Legacy 40. With 8 first round TKO/KOS it shouldn’t be a long fight!
Also on the card, one-legged Matt Betzold (6-4) makes his Legacy debut against Brazilian Rodrigo Lima in the co-main event. Betzold lost his leg as kid after being poisoned and since then has gone on to become a BJJ purple belt with 5 submission wins on his record. The card also includes hometown fighters Dave Vitkay, Tommy Jones, Joe Elmore, and Clay Harvison.
