LFA 1 set the expectations high for the rest of the year after living up to all the hype last night in Texas!
In the title unification bout, RFA Fighting champ, Leandro “Pitbull” Higo, took on the Legacy FC champ, Steven “Ocho” Peterson for the first ever LFA Bantamweight Title. These two left everything they had in the cage for 5 brutal and bloody rounds. Higo was crowned the inaugural Bantamweight champion after receiving a well deserved decision win from the judges. In the co-main event, Legacy FC & UFC veteran, Damon “The Leech” Jackson went to war against Charless Cheeks III. In the first round, Jackson immediately took Cheeks to the ground and dominated him on the ground before quickly finishing him off in the 2nd. There’s definitely a reason they call Jackson “The Leech”!
The quickest finish of the night went to Cameron Miller after he came out firing against Oscar Ramirez. Out of the gates, Miller knocked Ramirez to the ground and quickly transitioned into a tight rear-naked choke, finishing the fight only 29 seconds into round 1.
Here are the highlights:
