Fresh off hosting event No. 400, the ship continues to sail forward on AXS TV with Legacy Fighting Alliance 41 this Friday night from Prior Lake, Minnesota.

The main event features a pair of Top-5 lightweights looking to make a statement in a division without a champion, as Thiago Moises meets Jeff Peterson.

All the main card action begins at 9 p.m. ET on AXS TV.

Moises, a 23-year-old, was the second-youngest champion in Resurrection Fighting Alliance history when he secured a helicopter armbar on David Castillo. The Brazilian is 9-2 overall in his career, including a pair of title defenses – one of which was featured on the first season of Dana White’s “Lookin’ for a Fight” series.

A broken hand caused Moises to miss time, but the American Top Team-trained fighter is now fully recovered.

Peterson (9-4) carries a six-fight, three-year unbeaten streak into the meeting. He scored three “upsets” last year in LFA, including a decision vs. Mike Richman at LFA 29.

The 28-year-old who trains with Alliance MMA also holds wins over Bobby Lee and Brandon Jenkins to his resume.

Other planned bouts for the event include unbeaten Killys Mota vs. Lee, Raufeon Stots taking on the undefeated Emeka Ifekandu, Nate Jennerman vs. Kevin Croom and Ben Neumann vs. Bobby Cooper.

LFA 41 will be the seventh LFA event to take place in the state of Minnesota. RFA and Legacy FC hosted a combined nine events in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” before the merger. Six of those events took place under the RFA banner inside the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel.
