Brendan Allen has twice competed for Legacy Fighting Alliance gold.
Larry Crowe is a two-time contender for the now-defunct Legacy FC title.
The two meet in a middleweight showdown this Friday night in the main event of Legacy Fighting Alliance 43 live on AXS TV. The event takes place from the Beaumont Civic Center in Beaumont, Texas.
“Brendan Allen and Larry Crowe have a well-documented history of being top contenders in our organization,” said LFA CEO Ed Soares. “They have been two of our top middleweights for years, but somehow their paths have never crossed. Our fans will finally get to see them square off this summer when we head south to Beamount, Texas at LFA 43. “
Allen (8-3) is just 22 years old and has already fought five times for lFA. All eight of his career wins have come via form of finish for the Roufusport MMA Academy-trained fighter.
Crowe (10-6) picked up a victory over Bilal Williams in his most recent outing and will be competing in his home state of Texas. The 34-year-old has been with Legacy FC and LFA since 2010.
Other scheduled fights include Jake Heffernan vs. Peter Stanonik, Kolton Englund vs. Juan Gonzalez and Cameron Graves vs. Jordan Titoni.
