The Welterweights Headline a Brutal Card at LFA 19 | August 18th on AXS TV
August 17, 2017
Legacy Fighting Alliance Heads Back to South Dakota With the Best MMA Prospects Around!
In the main event of the evening, two LFA new comers wage war in the Welterweight division. 3-fight UFC-vet, David “Bulldawg” Michaud (11-3) is set to take on the Brazilian, Ciro “Bad Boy” Rodrigues (20-6, 1 NC) in what is sure to be a brutal battle! Michaud does his training out of The MMA Lab in Arizona, and he specifically trained with LFA’s James Nakashima and the UFC’s James Barberena for this fight. Rodrigues is making his U.S. debut with an impressive record that boasts 16 finishes in his 27-fight career. Watch for these two men to leave everything they have in the cage on Friday night!
The Flyweights are up to bat in the co-main event as Sid “Vicious” Bice (7-1) goes to war with Ken “The Sensation” Porter (10-3, 1 NC). Bice gets the chance to fight in front of a home town crowd this Friday in South Dakota. The last time we saw Bice was back at RFA 16 where he defeated now UFC fighter, Eric Shelton. Porter has fought twice with RFA where he went 1-1 on AXS TV. Both of these men have a base in wrestling so watch for some good ground game in this one!
