LFA is on the verge of a milestone event.
The unofficial UFC and Bellator feeder league will host its 100th event, LFA 100, on Friday, Feb. 19 at the Hartman Arena in Park City, Kan., the promotion announced Wednesday. The event’s main card will stream on UFC Fight Pass after prelims on Facebook.
LFA launched in January 2017, following a merger between Resurrection Fighting Alliance and Legacy FC. Since that time, LFA has promoted fights involving numerous competitors who went on to sign contracts with the UFC and Bellator.
UFC flyweight Jimmy Flick was the last man to hold the promotion’s 125-pound title, but he vacated after a UFC contract-earning performance on Dana White’s Contender Series.
In LFA history, there have been five 125-pound champions. None of them have needed to put forth a successful title defense to get a call to the big show. Roberto Sanchez, Casey Kenney, Brandon Royval and Brandon Moreno all were signed by the UFC before putting their belts on the line.
Joining the flyweight title challengers at LFA 100 is a middleweight tournament semifinal fight between DWCS alumni Anthony Adams (8-2) and Gregory Rodrigues (7-3). The winner will take on Josh Fremd (7-1), who was victorious at Friday’s LFA 98, for the LFA middleweight title later this year.
The current LFA 100 lineup includes:
Victor Altamirano (8-1) vs. Carlos Mota (5-0) – for vacant flyweight title
Anthony Adams (8-2) vs. Gregory Rodrigues (7-3) – middleweight tournament semifinal
Steven Nguyen (6-1) vs. Raihere Dudes (8-1)
Charles Johnson (7-2) vs. Karlee Pangilian (6-0)
Christian Natividad (2-0) vs. Evan Woolsey (1-1)
