Top Welterweight Prospects Go to War at LFA 11 in Arizona | May 5th on AXS TV

LFA is Bringing Plenty of New Faces to AXS TV This Friday as We Head to Phoenix for Fight Night!

In the main event on Friday, Matthew “The Thunder From Down Under” Frincu (10-2) is set to take on Maycon Mendonca (6-1) in the Welterweight division. Frincu is coming off of a win at LFA 5 where he destroyed his opponent and walked away with a decision victory. Frincu was originally supposed to take on Daniel Madrid who had to pull out of the fight due to a broken hand suffered in training camp. Frincu will now be taking on Mendonca who is a Brazilian Muay Thai specialist. Both of these men are talented strikers, so don’t blink during this one.

The co-main event of the evening features two more Welterweight prospects as James Nakashima battles Larue Burley. Nakashima has a very strong wrestling base to his fight game, but has never been able to finish a fight in his professional career. Burley is moving up to Welterweight from Lightweight for this fight and has the reputation of being “kryptonite” to wrestlers. Will we see Nakashima’s first ever finish or will Burley be able to add the first blemish to his opponent’s record?
