The Legacy Fighting Alliance will return to Lone Star State with a heavyweight championship fight on July 30.
The offer recently announced that Vernon Lewis will compete with Thomas Petersen for the LFA 113 vacancy at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton, Texas. The card will be held in front of a live audience and will be shown at the UFC Fight Pass at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. It will mark the 20th time the LFA has traveled to Texas.
“I’m excited to take the LFA heavyweight title in Texas to LFA 113,” Soares said. “Vernon Lewis and Thomas Petersen are two of the most successful heavyweights in LFA history and they are always looking for the knockout. They say everything is bigger in Texas and this fight is no different. On Friday, July 30 at the Bell County Expo Center, the winner will become the third heavyweight champion in LFA history. “
A Fort Worth-based police officer, Lewis has the heaviest wins in LFA heavyweight history. Relson’s 37-year-old spokesman Gracie Waco is the winner of his last four commercials, including Austen Lane’s first round of TKO on his last trip to LFA 83 in March 2020.
Petersen, meanwhile, is 4-0 in his growing career in MMA, with all his victories coming through first-round knockouts or technical knockouts. The Minnesota native is 3-0 in the LFA and comes from the suspension of Odell Pantin in the LFA 104 on April 16.
